This event is about uniting together to acknowledge North Carolina agriculture, healthy eating, and our farm to school heroes that grow, deliver, prepare, serve and teach others about local produce. Schools, early care and education centers, groups, organizations, agencies, businesses, individuals and families can all participate. If the designated day or time are not convenient, feel free to crunch any time during October. We would like for as many folks to have the opportunity to participate as possible.
A N.C. Crunch Guide has been created with information on sourcing local produce, curriculum connections, and social media and press release templates to help you share your Crunch with the local community, and more. We know that the N.C. Crunch will look different this year–that’s okay! This year’s N.C. Crunch Guide includes tips for crunching during COVID-19. To learn more and register for the N.C. Crunch, go to https://growing-minds.org/north-carolina-crunch/. Share your N.C. Crunch activities and photos on social media using #NCCrunch2021 and @F2SCoalitionNC.
