The mission of the Healthy Lombard Foundation is to address the epidemic of childhood obesity and promote a healthier lifestyle. With that mission in mind, the goal of the Healthy Lombard Foundation is to get a free apple into the hand of every child that wants one so that he/she can participate in Apple Crunch Day on October 8. Apple Crunch Day is celebrated during National Apple Month and encourages families to eat apples as a healthy snack.
The Jewel-Osco on Main Street (in Lombard) agreed to provide District 44 students with FREE Apple Coupons, AND are providing coupons for local residents (see link below). Jewel-Osco has partnered with us on Apple Crunch Day since 2016 and their support has contributed to building awareness in our community and increased participation.
New this year, Irv & Shelly’s Fresh Picks is donating 2 bushels of apples to the students at St. John’s school in Lombard. Irv & Shelly’s Fresh Picks partners with small family-owned farms and purveyors, bringing the best of local & organic foods to Chicagoland with convenient, safe and reliable home delivery. Visit www.freshpicks.com for more information on Irv & Shelly’s Fresh Picks. You can also find them on Instagram @freshpicks and Facebook @irvandshellysfreshpicks.
Healthy Lombard encourages participants to post their Apple Crunch Selfies. Photos can be uploaded to the Healthy Lombard Instagram @healthylombard or sent via email to email@example.com. All selfies will be posted on the foundation’s Healthy Lombard Facebook page.
