Join the Southeast states of North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Kentucky, and Tennessee in celebrating National Farm to School Month by crunching into a locally grown item at NOON on Friday October 21, 2016. Participants of all ages are invited to crunch!
Each state in the Southeast region will be crunching a fruit or veggie that is available from local farms in October. This event is about celebrating the region’s diversity and wide variety of products grown by local farmers!
North Carolina - Apples
South Carolina - Cucumbers
Georgia - Spinach
Florida - Cucumbers
Tennessee - Apples
Kentucky - Apples
The Southeast Crunch encourages healthy eating and supports farm to school and other local food purchasing initiatives throughout the region. It’s also a fun way to connect food and agriculture to all kinds of classroom curricula – from science to art! Of course, if you are unable to participate on October 21 or exactly at noon, we still encourage you to plan a Crunch event anytime during October’s National Farm to School Month festivities.
Ready to start planning your Crunch? We have created a Crunch Guide with information on sourcing your state's product, ways to connect to curriculum, a press release template to help you share your Crunch with the local community, and more! Select your state below to get started.
*Crunchers in GA will receive the Crunch Guide along with the Georgia Organics Leaf it to Spinach materials.
