CT Grown for CT Kids Week

What is CT Grown for CT Kids Week?

CT Grown for CT Kids Week is an annual, legislated week to celebrate locally grown products in the schools and our community.

Put Local on Your Tray alongside the CT State Department of Education and CT State Department of Agriculture host events all week long.

Examples of events include:

CT Legislator visiting schools, taste test events in school cafeterias, and activities for classroom teachers focused on local apples.

This year we know that these events will look a little different due to COVID 19 BUT we are determined to provide the necessary materials you will need to celebrate CT Grown for CT Kids with us.

Check out our Virtual Celebration Toolkit for schools.

The Hardcore Apple Challenge

The Hardcore Apple Challenge works alongside CT Grown for CT Kids Week by promoting locally grown apples and encouraging kids and families to bite into delicious CT apples.

We are providing fun, apple-themed activities families can do at home and the resources families will need to get out and visit their local Apple Orchard.
