Save the Date for the Michigan Apple Crunch on October 14th (or any day in October)!

We recognize that this year may again be different for many of our schools and other institutions that have typically participated in the Apple Crunch. Given the circumstances, we are still proceeding with the crunch this year as planned and are offering a variety of options for Michigan institutions, children, and residents to celebrate the Michigan apple harvest wherever you may be located come October 14th. We will also be sharing lots of resources to create activities and lessons to highlight the bounty of Michigan’s apple season. Please visit our registration page to ensure your crunch is counted and share your plans, photos from your event, and follow along on Facebook @miapplecrunch


To support your Michigan Apple Crunch:

·         Check out Cultivate Michigan resources to help you source Michigan apples from distributors and food hubs for your institutions and promote them in your cafeterias.

·          Visit the Michigan Apple Committee website that has searchable tools to help you find Michigan apples at farm markets and stores as well as activities for kids and resources for teachers.

·          Go to Michigan Farm to School for a range of resources and tools to help with your ongoing farm to school work at schools and early child care and education sites.
