Want a way to ensure a healthy snack and support Wisconsin farmers? The Eighth Annual Great Lakes Great Apple Crunch may be for you.

The event is scheduled for noon Thursday, Oct. 14, and involves hundreds of locations across the state. Participants are encouraged to bite into locally-grown Wisconsin apples at the same time to create “the crunch heard around the region.”

Those interested in participating can register at cias.wisc.eud/applecrunch. Registered participants will receive a program guide that includes information about apple recipes and where to find Wisconsin growers.
