GHS supports the Big Apple Crunch

On Thursday, October 25, dozens of Gloversville High School students gathered after school to simultaneously bite into apples grown in New York as part of a statewide event called the Big Apple Crunch. They joined students across the state participating in the #BigAppleCrunch to show their support for the local apple industry and raise awareness of eating locally sourced foods. Thanks to Roger’s Orchards in Johnstown for supplying the apples!

The Big Apple Crunch is an annual event sponsored by the FarmOn! Foundation, the New York Apple Association (NYAA) and the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets. FarmOn! Is a non-profit organization that creates and funds youth educational programs. The organization’s goal is to help preserve family farming in America by inspiring students to consider careers in sustainable agriculture. FarmOn! also focuses on the importance of local agriculture and its impact not only healthy eating habits but the health of New York’s economy. Visit the FarmOn! website for more information
