The 2016 Hunger Walkathon West (HWW) 2016 Walk Route will take walkers through the Austin community of Chicago and Oak Park. The commitment of the local CROP Hunger Walk to the community of Austin is not new. Since its origins 33 years ago, HWW has provided funding for Austin area hunger fighting agencies, most recently the Pine Avenue Food Pantry and Cluster Tutoring Program. Many participants from the Austin community help make HWW a success year after year and the route has included Austin in prior years as well.
In 2015 Hunger Walkathon West raised over $70,000 and was the 11th highest money raising Walk in the country. We want to raise $100,000 this year. Hunger continues to be a problem for our neighbors next door and around the world. HWW provides funds for other local area agencies including the OPRF, Forest Park, Proviso and Quinn Center Food Pantries as well as Housing Forward and the international relief and development programs of Church World Service.
