r On Wednesday, October 17, Nebo School District joined with schools across Utah, Wyoming, Montana, and Nebraska in celebrating the 2nd Annual Apple Crunch Day aka The Greatest Crunch on Earth! Each elementary student eating school lunch in the district received a local, farm-fresh apple with their school lunch meal. Apples were provided by Mountainland Apples located in Santaquin Utah, right here in our area. Elementary students loved crunching into fresh, delicious apples!

The Apple Crunch initiative encourages healthy eating, Farm to Fork and local food purchasing. It is a way to get excited about delicious local produce, help students understand where their food comes from, and support local farmers. It is also a great way to celebrate October, which is Farm to School Month.

Several schools in the district, including Westside and Meadowbrook, had staff and volunteers run booths at lunchtime to promote the event and interact with the students. Students were able to write their favorite ways to eat apples, choose sticker prizes, and learn apple fun facts. Did you know that the average American eats about 46 pounds of apples and apple products each year?

Thanks to all who participated in this year’s Apple Crunch Day! And a big thank you to Mountainland Apples for your contribution!
