Pittsburgh East CROP Hunger Walk Sunday, October 8

We are helping to end hunger!

Marnie Bertolet

Hunger kills more people every year than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis. Combined. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

For many years, the CROP walk has been an effective initiative that raises both awareness and crucial funding for those who are hungry or who are at risk of going hungry.

CROP funds provide, not just food and water but also resources and education to empower people to meet their own needs. 75% of the money raised in the Pittsburgh CROP walk goes to national and international efforts – nutritional programs for children in Myanmar. Seeds and vegetable plants for farmers in Indonesia. Disaster relief and food banks right here in our own country. CROP walk donations from last year are providing support for those affected by hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Specifically, hygiene kids and blankets, emergency clean-up buckets and school kits are examples of supplies that are being distributed in Cuba and Florida after Irma. The remaining 25% of funds stay local, benefitting the East End Cooperative Ministries and the Wilkinsburg Community Ministry.

The Pittsburgh CROP walk is October 8. There are many ways you can help, from recruiting people to walk, to walking to sponsoring someone who is walking.
