Did you hear that?

It’s the sound of 22,830 students doing the Great Big Crunch

By Grace Evans

If 22,830 students each take a big bite of an apple all at once, would we be able to hear the “crunch!” across Hamilton?

That’s the idea behind the Great Big Crunch, a special day of food education where students across Hamilton will have the opportunity to take a synchronized crunch into an apple while learning about healthy snacking and local food.

At Tastebuds, Hamilton’s Student Nutrition Collaborative, we support breakfast and snack programs across the city. Twenty-five thousand meals are served every day, putting nutritious food into the hands and bellies of students, providing universal access to the right ingredients for them to concentrate on their school work and learn lifelong healthy eating habits.

Tastebuds’ Great Big Crunch 2014!


The Great Big Crunch is a special day when students gather together in their classrooms, school gymnasiums and breakfast programs to take a great big bite out of an apple at the same time, making the loudest, biggest CRUNCH ever! As of today, we have 8,586 crunchers registered in Hamilton, so be sure to listen carefully on March 6th for the sound of that crunch.

Local apples from Carluke Orchards will be provided to schools and programs that are supported by Tastebuds free of charge and will be delivered by bicycle by THAAT Co-op on March 3rd and 4th.

Tastebuds programs and schools must register by February 20th to participate in the event. For more information, check out tastebudshamilton.ca/greatbigcrunch.

If you’d like to get involved, consider having your workplace sponsor a bin of apples ($540)  to provide 2000 apples for the Great Big Crunch. Contact Grace Evans at gevans@tastebudshamilton.ca or by calling (905) 522-1148, Ext. 315 to find out more information.
