Campus Crunch – October 24 (National Food Day)
The New York Campus Crunch is a state-wide celebration of local food on college campuses. Students, faculty and staff across New York State will take a bite out of a New York State-grown apple to affirm their commitment to food that is healthy for people and the planet. Help us get as many New York campuses involved in this annual event to celebrate our state’s agriculture!
Campuses across New York State will be taking the crunch throughout October, but the official crunch will take place on October 24, 2017 (also Food Day). Those who are not participating on October 24th will still receive recognition. All you need to do is register!
On Thursday, October 12th, the UAlbany community will crunch into an apple at 12:30pm around the Small Fountain. Stop by our table to get a free apple! In addition, there will be a Farmer’s Market from 11-3 pm.
