Early in the 1980s, some members of Oak Park's Second Presbyterian Church (since closed) formed a group interested in hunger issues. They met weekly in homes for simple soup suppers, and to address hunger issues and solutions. They soon transferred their membership to First United Church of Oak Park, where they continued to meet with the encouragement of the church staff. In about 1983 they were approached by Janet Young, Regional Directory for Church World Service (CWS), to start a local CROP Walk to raise funds to alleviate hunger.  CWS uses funds raised by CROP Walks for national and international relief and development programs.
