Nebraska “Crunch Off” Champions

In celebration of October as National Farm to School Month, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Food & Nutrition Service, Mountain Plains Regional Office worked with States in the Region to host a “Crunch Off!” The event was a friendly competition to see which State could pledge the most celebratory bites into crunchy, local food per capita during the month of October.

The goal was to promote the purchase and consumption of local produce as well as celebrate Farm to School Month in a fun, creative way. The States had tremendous success in spreading the word about Farm to School Month and encouraging folks across their States to purchase and crunch into local produce. This year Nebraska is crowned the Crunch Champion!
