Get ready to take a big bite out of a crisp, delicious local apple!
The Community Apple Crunch will take place at 10:30 am. Everyone will receive a local apple and at the signal of the bells ringing, we’ll all crunch in unison!
We’ll be participating in a unifying action to raise awareness about eating better diets for our health and the environment, access and affordability of fruits and vegetables, and supporting local farmers.
The Apple Crunch originated in New York City in 2012, with approximately 400,000 New Yorkers biting into a locally grown apple at the same time on Food Day. In 2013, the Big Apple Crunch in New York City set a world record with 1,000,000 people participating. The activity has spread across the country and now thousands of locations have Apple Crunches.
