We look forward to our
41st Annual CROP
Hunger Walk
Sunday, May 5, 2024

In 2023 we dedicated our 40th annual CROP Hunger Walk  to two hereos
Sylvia Menninga and Douglas J Wyman

Both were champions of the walk and served for many years. You can learn more about each of them by clicking on the button with their name. They had a dedication of purpose in Ending Hunger One Step At A Time. We are forever grateful for their being part of our effort to help those in need.

Congratulations to our partner agencies and teams for raising over $80,000 in their honor!  See the details in the blog.


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 and 2022 we modified our walk to a virtual walk and we will again in 2023.
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 2023 CWS Annual Report.
