School around Wayne County will celebrate local food by participating in the second annual Wayne County Apple Crunch on Oct. 24.

Students and staff in 13 schools will “crunch” into apples in honor of National Food Day and Wayne County’s 20th annual Apple Tasting Tour.

The event is one of several events that celebrate healthy, local food. Schools are sampling recipes in their cafeterias and learning about healthy eating with help from Cornell Cooperative Extension. Many participate in NY Thursdays, where a local food product is featured on the school lunch menu.

Photos and videos of this year’s Apple Crunch will appear on school social media pages and on CCE’s website and Facebook page. Call (315) 331-8415 for information.
