Sen. LaSata celebrates ‘Great Apple Crunch’

LANSING, Mich. — State Sen. Kim LaSata on Thursday invited Southwest Michigan residents to participate in the Great Apple Crunch on Oct. 8.

“Apples and fall go hand in hand, especially in Michigan, where we grow millions of apple trees that produce millions more bushels harvested each year,” said LaSata, R-Bainbridge Township. “Whether your family enjoys visiting one of our state’s more than 100 apple cider mills, grows your own apples at home, or you just like to eat store-bought apples as part of a healthy diet — no matter how you enjoy apples, join us on Oct. 8 for the Great Apple Crunch, and help us reach the goal of 2 million crunches in support of our local farmers.”

The Great Apple Crunch is celebrated throughout the Great Lakes region in conjunction with National Farm to School Month. For more information, visit
