Great Big Crunch 2020!

GREAT BIG CRUNCH 2020

The Vancouver Food Policy Council is proud to support the GREAT BIG CRUNCH, a national movement and annual moment of anti-silence in  which students, teachers, parents and others passionate about food join the food movement and crunch into apples (or other crunchy fruit or vegetable) to make noise for healthy school food!

The Vancouver Food Policy Council is pleased that the City of Vancouver has proclaimed the day as THE GREAT BIG CRUNCH FOR HEALTHY SCHOOL FOOD DAY in 2018, 2019, and again in 2020!

Come join us for a great big crunch on March 12!
