The Illinois Great Apple Crunch is a daylong celebration of Midwest produce. Schools across the state participate by serving local apples on the lunch tray and crunching into them together as a school. It is a fun event that lets schools support Illinois farmers and teach their students about healthy, fresh, and local food. Educational supplements are provided for use in the cafeteria and the classroom to teach students about Illinois apples. Mark your calendars for Thursday, October 12th, 2017 and join participants across Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan, Indiana and Ohio on Thursday, October 12, 2017, for the fourth annual Great Lakes Great Apple Crunch. Participants of all ages are invited to help us reach our goal of ONE MILLION CRUNCHES this year!
Last year, Healthy Lombard partnered with Jewel/Osco on Main Street to provide apples for community members, and students in Lombard Elementary School District District 44 and Glenbard High School District 87.
Over 3000 apple coupons were distributed making this event a HUGE success.
Please join us this year and crunch an apple on October 12yth
