2023 Great Big Crunch

Updated: Mar 7, 2023

After 2 years, in-person Great Big Crunch is returning on Thursday, March 9th, 2023! We anticipate over 20,000 crunchers will be participating at school events across Hamilton. The Great Big Crunch is a simple concept. Students gather together in classrooms, gymnasiums or hallways, each with a crisp, juicy apple in hand. After a countdown, everyone bites into their apples simultaneously, making a great big “crunch!”


All the apples are from the local orchards of Drummond Farms and purchased through a generous donation from FirstOntario Credit Union. All to celebrate healthy, local food during Nutrition Month!
