In our 37th year of our annual Hunger Walkathon West CROP Walk in the near west suburbs of Chicago, we continue to be an advocate for those in need of food.
Our support of 10 local charities, as well as the worldwide effort of Church World Service (CWS), who provide assistance in agronomy, infrastructure and best practices for learning about self sustaining ways in their own community to be self sufficient. Learn about their 50 year history.
Due the COVID-19 virus. We are modifying our walk on Sunday, May 3, 2020 into a Completely Virtual Walk Our Walk is Sunday, May 3, 2020 but on your own. "Walk together apart" on Sunday, May 3, 2020 at 2 p.m. Then at that time, plan to Walk on your own or with your immediately family. Choose a parking lot, from room to room in your house or apartment, around the block or at a city park. As you walk: text, call or video chat with other friends walking at the same time you are. Continue to Walk in solidarity for those near and far, while maintaining six feet apart.
