New This Year …..
IRV & SHELLY’S fresh pick whose mission is to support and partner with our local farms to bring you the best of local by connecting residents, the land, the farmers, and the freshest organic and sustainable foods in the Midwest, is supporting our efforts by providing 2 bushels of apples for Healthy Lombard to distribute!
IRV & SHELLY’S fresh picks also have lots of fun, easy and delicious recipes for you! We also partner with wellness professionals to provide nutrition tips so you can eat and stay healthy.
Founders Irv Cernauskas and Shelly Herman are passionate about good food and good health, both for their own families and all communities.
When they met at MIT pursuing MBAs, they envisioned using their new business skills for social good—healthier people, healthier communities, a healthier planet. Shelly went off to work in community economic development for 20 years investing in underserved areas. Irv became involved in nonprofit environmental activities and creating markets for local farmers.
Together they realized that people needed an easier way to get this fresh healthy food in a convenient year-round way. So they started Irv & Shelly’s Fresh Picks(R) to grow a better food system, one that supports our small independent farmers and feeds all of us.

What is Apple Crunch Day?
On “Apple Crunch Day”, Healthy Lombard encouraged everyone to crunch into an apple in a unifying action to raise awareness about eating better diets for our health and the environment, access and affordability of fruits and vegetables, and supporting local farmers.
Healthy Lombard Foundation Board President Jay Wojcik d is so grateful to Jewel/Osco on Main Street (in Lombard) agreed to provide District 44 students with FREE Apple Coupons, AND are providing coupons for local residents (see link below). Jewel partnered with us on Apple Crunch Day since 2016! Their support has contributed to building awareness in our community and increased participation.
BTW, enjoying an apple can be done at any time as well as anywhere – classroom, home, office. And when you do, Healthy Lombard is encouraging participants to post their Apple Crunch Selfies. Then they can be uploaded to the Healthy Lombard Instagram site or sent to Healthy Lombard at firstname.lastname@example.org to be posted on the foundation’s Healthy Lombard Facebook Selfie page.
The Apple Crunch originated in New York City in 2012, with approximately 400,000 New Yorkers biting into a locally grown New York State apple at the same time on Food Day. In 2013, the Big Apple Crunch in New York City set a world record with 1,000,000 people participating. The activity has spread across the country, and thousands of locations supported Apple Crunch Day in 2016.
