2024 Michigan Apple Crunch on October 17, 2024

The Michigan Farm to Institution Network is excited to announce the date for the 2024 Michigan Apple Crunch! This year we will be hosting the 12th annual Crunch on Thursday, October 17th. Last year, more than 250,000 people participated in The Crunch at their local school, hospital, business, organization or from their own home. Be sure to mark the Crunch on your calendars for this year and help us reach the 2024 goal of 350,000 Crunchers in Michigan. 

The Michigan Apple Crunch is a statewide event that promotes local food and farm to school programs by encouraging as many people as possible to “crunch” into a juicy Michigan Apple. Though the event is primarily focused on K-12 school participation, we encourage any large or small institutions, businesses or organizations to register for the event and join in the fun. Michigan is a top-three apple producing state and the Crunch is a great way to introduce students or employees to the benefits of local sourcing and local apples. 

Look for the Crunch registration to be released in August, along with the 2024 Crunch Guide and many more resources for making this year’s Crunch the best one yet. Please make sure to follow the Michigan Apple Crunch Facebook page for the latest updates and to post pictures of your Crunch when you celebrate on October 17th.  

The Michigan Apple Crunch is a collaborative promotional program of the Michigan Farm to Institution Network. MFIN is coordinated by the Center for Regional Food Systems with support from MSU Extension.
