Celebrate National Farm to School Month in October Flordia Crunch! Event Toolkit Cover page
UF/IFAS Extension Family Nutrition Program
The Florida Crunch is a one-day event hosted by schools to celebrate National Farm to School Month in October. It raises awareness of Florida-grown produce and healthy eating by highlighting one fruit or vegetable for students to learn about and sample in a taste test. The event encourages schools to serve more Florida-grown produce in the cafeteria throughout the year. This toolkit provides a step-by-step guide for schools and SNAP-Ed IAs to celebrate National Farm to School Month and lay the groundwork for future farm-to-school or farm-to-ECE activities. A Crunch event can be a simple taste test in a classroom or a schoolwide event. The featured produce and Crunch campaign materials could be adapted for use in other states.
