5 Decades of Walking to End Hunger

5 Decades of Walking to End Hunger

Tuesday, March 27, 2018

Welcome Spring 2018

We welcome spring, a time of renewal and growth.  We gather together to be thankful for what we have, and to reach out to our neighbors to grow our circle of caring and to share with those in need. “There is Enough for All.”
In springtime our Crop Walk family looks forward seven months to CROP WALK #38, on Sunday October 21st.
Hunger knows all seasons, and we know that our walk is preparation for times when the shelves are empty.  We need you to help us bring awareness to the issues of hunger and poverty and work together to find solutions. Hunger can be invisible, because we don’t expect that folks really are hungry in a country that is so wealthy and sophisticated, and resources are plentiful.  Just visit one of our 15 local partners of CROP Walk right here in Monmouth County to know that hunger is all around because food costs money, and wages are often low, and prices keep rising for housing and education and child and elder care. One dollar does not buy much these days.  We are thankful for what we have been able to accomplish over the last year, in response to so much suffering. Our community gatherings and walks help to raise awareness and also food and money to share with those who need it most.
We believe there is enough for all: food, water, shelter, safety, dignity & hope.

Every year since 2000, our Crop Walk has raised over $100,000 annually and participants have collected and shared many tons of food (2000 pounds = 1 ton)   Thanks to the time, energy, talent, and devotion of hundreds of folks, and thousands of sponsors, we hope to continue our journey with Church World Service on a mission of transforming communities all around our world through just and sustainable responses to hunger, poverty, displacement and disaster.
