The Great Big Crunch!

THANKS to Laura for contacting me about this....anybody else game?  Read Laura's note below which tells you how to participate!!

You can contact Laura via twitter (@nfftt ) to let her know you are interested!!

I'll be crunching a Royal Gala from Lincoln Line Orchard-YUM!
The Great Big Crunch is coming up on Thursday, March 10th at 2:30pm EST. You can read about it here but the gist is that kids all over will be crunching into local apples at the exact same time. Schools have registered across the country and beyond, and some kids will even go on their loud speakers to rally everybody to make a great big CRUNCH! It's fun, it's simple, and it promotes local food. And it was started right here in Toronto by the school food programs at FoodShare.

The main target is schoolkids but I thought it'd be fun to do a Twitter version. So I'm asking a bunch of food and enviro folks to do the following:

  • Get your paws on a local apple.
  • At 2:30 PM next Thursday, polish your apple and give it a great big CRUNCH!
  • Take a snapshot of you crunching and post it to Twitter (using yfrog, twitpic, your webcam, or whatever other means of photo-tweeting that you use)
What do you think? You in? If so, let me know and I'll tally the positive responses to register us with the official count.

If you can tweet ahead of time (2-3 tweets) letting other folks know, that'd be great. And if you know any tweeple who would be interested, tell them to drop me a line or forward this note.
