Rebel Crumbles have a knack for defying expectations. For starters, despite their suggestive name, the snack-size apple-cranberry treats do not in fact fall to pieces at first bite.
The pastry, created by Philadelphia high school students with support from Penn’s Netter Center for Community Partnerships, embodies a new model for tackling nutrition and building career skills in public schools. This year, Rebel Crumbles became the first known student-made product to be included on the Philadelphia School District menu. This spring, children at every public school in the city will consume over 250,000 crumbles through the district’s breakfast program.
