NC-crunch-logo-300x220.png - image The NC Crunch, from the Farm to School Coalition of NC, is designed to celebrate agriculture, nutrition and farm to school. The NC Farm to School Cooperative is sponsoring a contest to recognize NC schools and early care and education sites for their promotion of fruits and vegetables grown in our state during October. First through third place will be awarded with prizes of $250, $150 and $100 gift cards.

Post about your NC Crunch activities using #NCCrunch, #F2SMonth and @F2SCoalitionNC. Please help us spread the word so we can make it an NC Crunch heard ‘round the state. Share the attached flyer and apple fact sheet, post the messages below to social media, and include an announcement in your newsletters or on your email listservs.

The Farm to School Coalition of North Carolina (F2SCNC) brings together a dedicated group of farm to school (F2S) stakeholders in collaboration to expand and strengthen farm to school initiatives across the state. The NC Farm to School Cooperative is a group of farmers from across the state who formed a cooperative in order to submit bids for the North Carolina Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services, NC Farm to School Program.
The NC Farm to School Program is celebrating its 20th anniversary of supplying School Nutrition Programs across our state with the freshest, locally grown produce from North Carolina farms.
