Our 40th Annual CROP Hunger Walk
As we start planning for our 40th annual CROP Hunger Walk, on Sunday, May 7, 2023, we are reminded of the good people in our community who make this walk and past ones so memorable.
Memorable in the way we come together to let people know here and around the world that the need is continuing and our part is to help with that need.
Statistically there are food insecurities locally and internationally. Our walk raises awareness and money to #endhungernow with a #passionforcompassion.
These hashtags, which are used on social media, speak to what our walkers strive for. We use them here in our blog and on our social platforms as well. It is a reminder what the walk is about and that the people in our community who make a difference, have a passion for doing.
As a reminder we contribute 25% of the funds raised locally and provide CWS Global with 75% for the work they do, both in the United States and around the world.
The local agencies we walked for these past several years are:
Beyond Hunger Food Pantry
Cluster Tutoring Program
First Baptist of Melrose Park Food Pantry
Forest Park Food Pantry, Forest Park
Pine Avenue Food Pantry, Chicago
Proviso Food Pantry, Melrose Park
Quinn Center of St. Eulalia Hunger Ministry, Maywood
St. Martin de Porres Food Pantry, Chicago
Vision of Restoration Food Pantry, Maywood
We look forward to this 40th annual CROP Hunger Walk and hope that you do too.
