Our Apple and Pear CRUNCH Challenge is our way of participating in CT Grown for CT Kids Week, an effort led by the State Departments of Education and Agriculture and the Connecticut Farm to School Collaborative.

Interested in learning more about what CT Grown for CT Kids Week is? Visit the CT Farm to School's website to find out how you can join us in celebrating local farms and food for the entire week and don't forget, October is National Farm to School month so the celebration can continue all month long!

There will be a variety of ways to participate and due to the changes being made in schools as a result of COVID 19, virtual activities and resources will also be available.

So check it out and start celebrating!
