De Soto USD 232 takes part in Crunch Off

De Soto USD 232 takes part in Crunch Off

De Soto Unified School District 232 staff members took part in the fourth annual Mountain Plains Crunch Off earlier this month.

The district served autumn crisp apples from South Baldwin Farms in Baldwin City.

“They were too delicious for our staff to not take a big ‘crunch” out of them,” USD 232 Nutrition wrote on its Twitter account.

This month, Kansas is participating in the Mountain Plains Crunch Off with seven other regional states. The Kansas goal is 50,000 crunches statewide. The regional goal is 202,200 crunches.

This year’s participants are able to crunch on not only apples, but any local crunchable produce.

The Kansas State Department of Education’s Child Nutrition and Wellness team will be participating Tuesday, Oct. 18, during its online Town Hall meeting.
