The “official” Great Big Crunch takes place on March 1st, 2018 at 2:30pm EST and you can register here.
Since 2008, over 1 million people have joined us for the Great Big Crunch, an annual moment of anti-silence where everyone gets together and bites into crunchy fresh local produce in unison. The symphony is loud, whether you munch on apples or carrots. From coast to coast to coast, celebrate and enjoy healthy snacking with your class, colleagues or friends. Using vegetables and fruits as stars in recipes and fun activities will make you cherish the local bounty around us all.
How the Great Big Crunch works:
- You register to munch with us before crunchday. You can sign up for yourself, your class, your school or your whole school board!
- We share fun curriculum linked class activities and recommend some fresh local produce for you to snack on.
- You get all your friends together and take a synchronized bite at 2:30pm EST on March 1st, 2018. Don’t forget to share your crunch photos with us using #GreatBigCrunch.
- Get a Great Big Crunch Certificate to proudly display on your wall (2018 certificate to be published after the big day).
- Hope your tooth doesn’t pop out.
And remember, you can register and participate in the Great Big Crunch any time, year ’round!
Please note: Thank you for crunching with us! In Toronto, you can source apples and other crunchy fruits and vegetables from your local grocer. Alternatively, if your school has a Good Food Box account with FoodShare, you can purchase apples at an affordable price through our Good Food Program ordering team and have them delivered, or you can arrange pick up at 120 Industry St, York, ON.
