Walk. Give. Change the world.
Our community believes in ending hunger. And, in 2020, we will continue to fight against the new challenges of disease and disaster that leave people hungry. Join with us in raising funds to help neighbors near and far get the meals they need this year.
Walkers have reported $5,759 in online and offline gifts!

Hunger rages on in our nation and world during the coronavirus pandemic. That makes the life-giving work of Church World Service and the Dayton Foodbank more vital than ever, as they combat poverty and hunger among our neighbors near and far.
Our Dayton Area CROP Hunger Walk, focused on Sunday, October 4, will be all-virtual in 2020. While we will miss walking together on the pleasant paths of our MetroParks, we can be creative this year while observing the applicable social distancing and mask requirements.
Here are some ideas:
Take a mini-walk around your church or neighborhood that first October weekend
Walk from your home with signs and CROP shirts, recording the walk on social media
Organize a week of hunger reflections on Zoom, ending with a gathered, socially-distanced walk together on Oct. 4
Take part in a “spirit walk” if you can’t actually walk safely right now
The first thing to do: register yourself and your team online here
Make a donation yourself, then invite family members and friends to sponsor you with secure online donations. Use social media to spread the word that you’re making a difference along with hundreds of others in faith communities throughout the Miami Valley. Gather a team of all ages from your church, synagogue or group to take part and make sure everyone gets registered online to make contributing simple and safe.
Donations by check (made out to CWS/CROP) or cash are also welcome. Contact Walk Treasurer Ina Green (937-344-6029) to arrange for her to receive these gifts.
When you do celebrate the October 4 CROP Walk—by yourself or with others—check out the Dayton CROP Walk Facebook page for a “send-off” video encouraging you in your journey with and for people who are hungry. Post photos of your walk to our Dayton Area CROP Hunger Walk Facebook page
Please remember: Each step you take, and each dollar you raise, is a prayer for a hunger-free world.
Together, we can help end hunger in our community and around the world.
