We raised $134,000.00 for our 2021 Virtual CROP Hunger Walk. You are amazing.

40th Annual CROP Hunger Walk
Sunday, May 7, 2023

Millions of families in America and around the world, go hungry every year. Help us provide them with enough to eat. 
Our Hunger Crop Walk for 2022 was a Virtual Walk
and we raised $127,000.
Did you know you can still donate now.
Our sincere thank you to all who participated.


We are one of over 600 CROP Hunger Walks held across the United States that raise money and awareness for those in need.

In 2021 we were the #5 Walk in the U.S.
In 2021 we modified our walk to a virtual walk.
See our blogs for more information
People from organizations in Oak Park, River Forest, Forest Park, Chicago, Melrose Park and Maywood get together to participate. We ask our families, friends and co-workers to support our efforts to raise money for national and international relief and development efforts by CWS Global and ten local agencies that help hungry people in our communities.
See the 2021 CWS Annual Report.

We are so grateful for all who participated and helped us to raise $127,000.00 in 2022.

We all know the work CWS does:

CWS Named 2022 National VOAD Member of the Year 
and also received
Charity Navigator's Four-Star Rating!

They continue to inspire us.
