The Crunch

The Crunch is an exciting year of activities, experiences and discussions about our food, our health and our planet.


Techniquest is a partner in The Crunch, created by the Wellcome Trust. Through The Crunch we want to help people think about how our food, our health and our planet are all interconnected. By examining our relationships with food, and exploring cutting edge research, we can think about how we can eat in ways that can keep our planet and ourselves healthy. Read more information about the project here.
