Art Helps Us to Tell the Story of CROP Walk

Student artists from Trinity Hall HS and Red Bank Regional HS along with Red Bank Primary School Principal Mrs. Maria Iozzi and Vice-Principal Dena Russo are pictured with some of the artwork submitted to our 2019 CROP Walk Art Contest. Student artwork brings alive the theme of the walk each year. Our 2019 walk theme was "Stepping Up to End Hunger". 

Our 39th Red Bank CROP Hunger Walk showed the long term commitment that our communities hold to end hunger in the world. For the past 20 years we have raised over $100,000 annually to help support our local and global partners working to end hunger. We raised $106,000 this year and checks have gone out to our 15 local partner programs. 25% of all funds raised stays right here in Monmouth County. For more information on our local partner programs. 

75% of the funds raised help to support the national and global responses of Church World Service Global  as they help people to recover from natural disasters, rebuild lives of dignity when dealing with food insecurity, homelessness, and extreme poverty. 

Final walk certificates have been mailed to thank our sponsors, participating faith groups, schools, and community groups. We celebrate our walk in the rain last October, and are grateful for the continued success of our CROP Hunger Walk, named #6 in the United States.

Where did winter go? Spring is just around the corner and our committees will be starting up work for our 2020 walk.
