Join us on April 23rd for our annual South Bay CROP Hunger Walk, sponsored by Church World Service (CWS)! With its inception in 1969, CROP Hunger Walks are viewed by many as the granddaddy of charity walks. The walk’s legacy is deeply entrenched even in our own community; since 1993, our community has raised over $1.2 million through 70+ local groups. We walk to respond to resource shortages, to protect and provide for our vulnerable, to build sustainable community, and to show solidarity in a time of divisiveness. We choose to walk so that others don’t have to.

We encourage you to check out these online resources as you seek to promote this year’s walk! And for those of you interested in tracking pledges by pen and paper, here’s a printable form where you can do so!
 
A BIG thank you to our 2016 participants and sponsors, who helped raise $31,074.08 last year (our highest fundraising amount in the last three years!).

Together, we can help end hunger in our community and around the world!

Teams and Walkers

The South Bay CROP Hunger Walk is one of 1,000+ across the nation, symbolizing the walk many around the world must make for basic resources such as food, water, shelter and protection. In a world where there is enough food for all, we are moved to action by the fact that one out of every nine people goes to bed hungry each night. With our combined national efforts, we raise around $10 million annually towards the shared mission of ending this worldwide inequity. Money raised supports food programs in emergency response, as well as longer-term solutions like enhancing food security and providing sustainable safe water supplies. Through our collaboration, 75 percent of funds support the global development work of CWS. This year,  CWS is focusing on the support of the world's refugee population and funds raised in excess of last year's total will be committed to that cause, with the exception of the 25% portion that goes to the support of our local charities (Second Harvest Food Bank & Sacred Heart Community Center).
