In celebration of National Farm to School month, Tri-Valley is joining
schools, preschools, colleges, and hospitals across the Great Lakes
Region states of Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan, Indiana and
Ohio in the sixth annual Great Lakes Great Apple Crunch. Participants
celebrate National Farm to School Month and local farmers by crunching
into locally grown apples on Thursday, October 10!
have been sent out to district Senators and
Representatives inviting them to join in on the activities and be involved in a
“Legislator to Lunch.” Activities throughout the day will be held at
each center. There will be special
guests such as the local fire department, police department, community
partners, farmers, and district legislators!
This collective crunch encourages
healthy eating and supports farm to school and local food initiatives throughout
the Great Lakes Region. We would love it if you
could join us on this day. It would be a
great opportunity to dialog around the issues of Farm to School/Early Care and
more broadly, Child Nutrition Programs. Tri-Valley is a strong advocate
of Farm to School and Early Care and center staff would love to have a deeper
conversation of how Tri-Valley incorporates the Farm to Early Care Initiative
in our centers and to share what Farm to Early Care looks like to Tri-Valley.
menu for the day will also be sourced locally and come from a variety of farms
in the area.
