It’s Great Lakes Great Apple Crunch Time, Badger High School, Lake Geneva

Badger High School is joining schools, early care sites, hospitals, universities, state agencies, and non-profit organizations across the Great Lakes Region to celebrate National Farm to School Month by crunching into local apples for the Sixth Annual Great Lakes Great Apple Crunch at lunch time!

Over 1.4 million students, children, food service staff, health care workers, teachers, and others are registered for the annual event, with Crunches occurring at over 4,236 locations across Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois, Michigan, Indiana, and Ohio.

This is the third year that the Lake Geneva Badger FCCLA has provided apples for the student body. The apples were purchased from Hafs Road Orchard, Lake Geneva. The FCCLA members then cleaned and cut about 500 apples so students could crunch on apples with caramel or just grab a whole apple. The students were able to get the apples during their lunch on Thursday, October 10, 2019.

This collective Apple Crunch encourages and celebrates the use of healthy, Wisconsin-grown foods in cafeterias across the state. We Crunch together to support our local farmers, to grow healthy eaters, and to build strong community across our state and region.

For more information, or to crunch with us, please contact Deanna Giovingo at 262-348-2000 ext. 2320.
