Students at St. Christopher School in Northeast Philadelphia got a life-long lesson in healthy eating habits on Apple Crunch Day, a national awareness campaign on Tuesday, Oct. 24. The school assembly, run by archdiocesan Nutritional Development Services, encouraged more than 460 kids and their families to eat apples as a healthy snack.
NDS partners with 102 schools in the Philadelphia region to administer the federally funded National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program to ensure more 30,000 students have access to breakfast and lunch during the school day. (Photos by Sarah Webb)
