October 24 is Food Day, a national effort created by CSPI to celebrate healthy, sustainable, and affordable food.

There are several events across the country you can participate in, but New Yorkers are doing something pretty unique on this day.

New Yorkers will attempt to set the world record for the "Most participants in an apple-crunching event." Individuals and groups are encouraged to register and pledge to crunch an apple at 12pm on October 24th to create the "crunch heard 'round the world."

GrowNYC is also hosting group crunches by providing free apple slices at the following Wednesday Greenmarkets:

Manhattan

West 57th Street Dag Hammarskjold Plaza Mount Sinai Tribeca Union Square

Bronx

New York Botanical Garden Learn It, Grow It, Eat It Youthmarket Roberto Clemente Plaza Youthmarket

Brooklyn
