Our local CROP Hunger Walk raises funds for 10 hunger fighting agencies in Chicago, Oak Park, Forest Park, Maywood and Melrose Park as well as the international programs of CWS-Global. We have participated in this effort for 37 years, during which Hunger Walkathon West has raised more than 1.6 million dollars.
CROP Hunger Walks are community-wide events that bring people together in this common mission to raise funds to provide permanent solutions to hunger. Together we will do amazing things like establish community gardens, fund small business loans, provide livestock to struggling farmers and much more!
We believe that there is enough for everyone in our world and no one should be hungry. Please help us to make this year a fundraising success. The steps we take - and the funds we raise - will have a real impact!
