Students at St. John Fisher Catholic School in Forest joined thousands of others across the district to participate in the Great Big Crunch for 2017.
"Our Student Wellness Team is determined more than ever this year to provide our students with activities that allow us to put into action our Catholic virtues, as well as healthy choices to strengthen our minds, bodies and faith," says Luana Sfalcin, Principal of St. John Fisher Catholic School.
"The team eagerly organized our school event this year and, as they distributed the apples, spoke to students in each classroom about why our school was taking part in the Great Big Crunch," says Mrs. Sfalcin.
The Great Big Crunch is a fun annual event that highlights the importance of eating healthy foods during the school day. It's financially supported by the Ontario Student Nutrition Programs of Lambton County and Chatham-Kent; and also by the Healthy Kids Community Challenge in Sarnia-Lambton.
About 30 thousand apples were consumed in schools all across the district as part of the Great Big Crunch this year, making it one of the most successful events ever.
