CCS Celebrates the Great Lakes Great Apple Crunch Day
October 10, 2019 -- Columbus City Schools and the District's Farm to School Initiative joined forces with the Great Lakes Great Apple Crunch for one great crunch... out of an apple! Columbus City Schools celebrated Ohio’s abundance of fresh, local produce by taking part in this fun, one-day event by planning to collectively crunch into Ohio apples.
Farms to school enriches the connection communities have with fresh, healthy food and local food producers by changing food purchasing and education practices at schools and early care and education settings by including school gardens, serving local foods and teaching about nutrition and agriculture. Farm to school empowers children and their families to make informed food choices while strengthening the local economy and contributing to vibrant communities.
