Join the 44th Freehold Area CROP Hunger Walk at 1:30 PM on Sunday, October 20th at The Reformed Church of Freehold, 67 West Main Street. Our walk is co-sponsored by the Freehold Clergy Association and the Windsor Hightstown Area Ministerium, both interfaith groups.

Help us celebrate CROP’s Golden 50th Anniversary of walks to end hunger and poverty and promote peace and justice, with registration and kick-off events at 1:30 PM and the Walk at 2 PM. A 2.6 mile route on the historic, picturesque neighborhood streets of Freehold (marked and open until 4 PM) or the 1/10 of a mile mini-route circling the church may be chosen. Maps provided at sign-in. Hoagies, pastries and water will be available.

All free-will offerings accepted for refreshments are added to our pledges. Please try to turn in pledges and donations of soup, rice, beans, peanut butter and pet food at sign-in. You are encouraged to register and gather pledges here, on-line. Givers may designate donations through tax-exempt agencies related to their faith group. Every walker with pledges receives a t-shirt.

Pets can also raise money for world hunger and are welcome walkers on a leash. Register your pet walker here and/or email your Pets Ending World Hunger Photo Contest picture to mary.keelan@yahoo.com. by October 15th. Contest entrance fee is $15.00. Vote for  the prize-winner on the day of the walk! 


The walker with the highest pledge total becomes our honored Walk Marshal and leads the walk through the balloon arch starting line. The youth under 21 with the highest pledge total wins a prize. The team with the greatest number of walkers with pledges receives the 2019 Most Walkers Gilded Sneaker Trophy. The team with highest pledges received by November 20 receives the 2019 Top Fundraising Gilded Sneaker Trophy. 25% of the money raised ($7500+ in 2018) is shared with local charities that fight hunger and poverty.
