    Big Apple Crunch  
    During the week of October 25th we celebrate New York State's apple harvest with the Big Apple Crunch!  At around 2pm, all students and staff in the district put aside what they are doing to take a big bite of a locally grown apple.  Mrs. Kim Roll from food services is able to provide, coordinate, and distribute over 8,600 apples district-wide for the crunch!
     
     
     
    District Wellness Week

    Harvest of the Month
        Ken-Ton UFSD's food service promotes a Harvest of the Month that highlights fruits and vegetables that are featured on the monthly lunch menus. Students will learn about the benefits of the foods in school, have an opportunity to try them as a part of the school lunch program, and use the recipe on the back of the lunch calendar to make a fun recipe at home.
