Since 2008, over one million people across Canada have taken part in the Great Big Crunch, a FoodShare Toronto initiative, by simultaneously crunching into apples (or any other crunchy fruit/vegetable) to make noise for healthy school food.

This year, with growing momentum for a National School Food Program and the Nourish Kids Now campaign, 2020’s Great Big Crunch is one you won’t want to miss! So on Thursday, March 12, at 2:30 p.m. EST, join hundreds of thousands across the country in crunching for healthy school food programs.

It’s also a great way for schools to celebrate Nutrition Month.

Participating is simple — you can organize a crunch at your school, in your office, or even with a friend at home. FoodShare has created a Great Big Crunch Educator Toolkit and the Coalition for Healthy School Food has also developed a Great Big Crunch 2020 Toolkit to support you in organizing your Great Big Crunches.

Be sure to register your crunch with FoodShare before March 12th, and use the hashtags #GreatBigCrunch and #NourishKidsNow on social media to make your crunch echo far and wide.
