BRIARCLIFF, N.Y. -- The Wellness Committee participated in the annual Big Apple Crunch to support healthy eating. Students at all three Briarcliff Manor schools enjoyed a healthy local snack as part of New York’s Big Apple Crunch on Oct. 23 and 26.
“The Big Apple Crunch is organized throughout New York in support of Food Day, which is Oct. 24,” said Stephanie Casper of the district’s Wellness Committee. “Food Day is a nationwide celebration and a movement for healthy, affordable and sustainable food.”
Briarcliff Manor’s students participate in the Big Apple Crunch annually. This year, high school students each received an apple when they arrived to school on Oct. 23, while middle school students enjoyed apples at lunchtime.
All students at Todd Elementary School gathered on the morning of Oct. 26 to crunch an apple together. The PTA thanked Mrs. Green’s National Market, in conjunction with Klein’s Kill Fruit Farm as well as Stew Leonard’s, for donating apples for the district’s Big Apple Crunch.
