In our 40th 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.
In 2022, our 39th year, we raised $127,000.00 as a Virtual Walk
We were ranked #5 out of 661 Walks in 2021
All of this is accomplished by Volunteers.

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. See the 2023 Annual Report.
Due the COVID-19 virus. We modified our walk again this year into a Virtual Walk.
The Walk was Sunday, May 1, 2022 but on your own. "Walk together apart"
Then at that time, we walked on our own or with our immediately family. We chose a parking lot; a church courtyard or from room to room in your house or apartment; around the block or at a city park. As we walked: text, called or did a video chat with other friends walking at the same time.
With that effort, the same as we have done for 39 years, we hope to repeat this amount with the generosity as a virtual walk as we did last year, in this our 40th annual walk.
