Michigan Apple Crunch

Welcome to the 2023 Michigan Apple Crunch! Below you will find resources to help you celebrate this year’s apple crunch on Thursday, October 12, 2023. 

What’s this Crunch all about, anyway?

The Michigan Apple Crunch is an annual event hosted by MSU Extension and the Michigan Farm to Institution Network to promote National Farm to School Month and celebrate the iconic Michigan Apple. Thousands of participants from K-12 schools, Early Care and Education sites and other institutions and organizations across the state and Great Lakes Region register to crunch into a local Michigan apple on Crunch day. Apples provide a great way to get local schools and institutions excited about supporting local farmers and they are a nutritious snack that is available in Michigan eleven months of the year.

To show your support for Michigan farmers and Farm to School/Institution Programs be sure to register and participate in this year’s Michigan Apple Crunch!
