New Yorkers can take a bite of an apple in the Big Apple on Food Day and help set an apple-crunching world record.

Last year, I was in New York City for the first Food Day marquee event
. I love the idea of Food Day
, a nationwide celebration
and a movement for healthy, affordable, and sustainable food, but one of the things I found missing from last year’s New York celebration was public participation.
The 2012 Food Day is next week, Oct. 24, and everyone in New York City will have a chance to participate in an event — The Big Apple Crunch
. It’s an attempt to set a word record for the Most Participants in an Apple-Crunching Event.
At one synchronized time, 12 p.m. on Oct. 24, New Yorkers will make “the crunch heard ‘round the world.” In reality, the apple can be crunched at any time during that day; as long as the crunchers are registered, it will count. RecordSetter.com, a New York City-based organization tracking new world records, will track the number of crunchers.
