DC CROP Hunger Walk: Ending Hunger…One Step at a Time | Events
From Denise Edwards:
Looking to make a difference in these trying times, the Washington, DC CROP Hunger Walk has set a goal of 180 Walkers and a $20,000 target in order to help stop hunger and poverty in our community and around the world through self-help initiatives. A portion of the funds raised here from the Washington, DC CROP Hunger Walk will go to help Martha’s Table and DC Hunger Solution.
The even will take place on Saturday, May 5 at the Christ United Methodist Church at 4th and I Street SW. Registration starts at 9:45 a.m..
Last year, the 152 DC CROP Hunger Walkers raised more than $18,000. This year Washington, DC and some 2,000 cities and towns nationwide are joining together in interfaith community CROP Hunger Walks around the theme "Ending hunger one step at a time." Many of the CROP Walkers will be wearing T-shirts proclaiming their solidarity with the millions of neighbors around the world who have to walk to live -- as well as with the millions served by local food pantries, food banks, and meal sites here in the U.S. These local ministries share in the funds raised by CROP Hunger Walks.
CROP Hunger Walks also play a recovery role here at home in the U.S., helping communities ravaged by floods, tornadoes and other natural disasters.
