Rhode Island Apple Crunch 2022

Apple with a bite taken outHelp celebrate National Farm to School month and raise awareness for Farm to School in RI by taking part in a statewide “Apple Crunch” event and related activities. Get details and share this CRUNCH FLYER with others!

On October 19th, we’ll synchronize our watches for 12:00 noon and bite into locally grown apples!
