Crunching for good heath

October 10, 2022

Goshen Health and Lakeland Primary School are partnering again this year to celebrate the eighth annual Great Lakes Great Apple Crunch. They’ll be joined in their celebration by other organizations, schools and hospitals across the Great Lakes Region states of Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan, Indiana and Ohio.
 
On Thursday, October 13, Lakeland Primary students will participate in a school-wide apple “crunch” event on the playground at 2:00 p.m. The fun and learning will continue on Friday, October 14, when students will participate in a variety of fun apple-themed educational and activity stations throughout the school day.
 
"Partnering with our community in order to help children learn about nutrition and health is an honor for Goshen Health” said Randy Christophel, Goshen Health President and Chief Executive Officer. "Collaborations like this help to positively impact the health of our community in a fun way."

“We are so excited to participate in the crunch event again this year,” said Kimberly Kabrich, Principal at Lakeland Primary School, “Our team has worked very hard to create fun, educational activities that the students will love.”

This collective crunch encourages healthy eating and supports farm to school and local food initiatives throughout the Great Lakes Region.
