Starting Our 5th Decade of Walking to End Hunger

Starting Our 5th Decade of Walking to End Hunger
41st Red Bank CROP Hunger Walk


 Last year the theme for our banner/poster contest was "Stepping Up to End Hunger".  In on honor of the beginning of our 5th decade of walking to end hunger, our 2021 theme is "HIGH FIVE FOR CROP WALK."  


Each year of our annual CROP Hunger Walk we encourage students to contribute a poster or banner to help us raise awareness about the issues surrounding hunger and poverty here in the United States and around the world. 

This year's 41st Red Bank CROP Hunger Walk, we are offering students a choice of five areas for the focus of their artwork:
        1. Hunger
        2. Housing
        3. Clean Water
        4. Climate Change
        5. Refugees & Immigrants

2020 was an unprecedented and so very difficult year for so many people here in the US and around the world. Food insecurity, lack of clean water, proper sanitation, and safe shelter are all part of what people experience. Our five areas are some of those that are the major causes of poverty and hunger.

Our contest allows students to express how they feel about such important issues. CROP Hunger Walks, the community fundraising appeal of Church World Service supports the mission and belief that there are enough resources in the world to provide nutritious food and clean, safe water for everyone. Without these basics our human family can't survive.  
Last year artwork was posted digitally online. We will once again be hanging student artwork at Red Bank Regional High School. Walk participants will arrive (drop off artwork, donations, and food) at 1:00. We'll also listen to some great music from The Wag. Artwork will be judged before CROP Walkers step up to the start line to do a celebratory lap around the high school.
