37th Red Bank CROP Hunger Walk Steps Up to the Start Line * Sunday, October 15, 2017

Our Steps Help to Set a Place at the Table for ALL

Our Steps Help to Set a Place at the Table for ALL


Our food collection has been coordinated by Sheila Alfano and Eileen Betz for over two decades! We thank them for their dedication to our CROP Hunger Walk. They will help usher in a new generation of food collection coordinators this year! Welcome Vicky Smith and Joe Lotito. Thank you for stepping up and taking on this challenge.

We ask every walk participant to contribute to the food collection. Tarps will be set up to show you where to drop off the food. You'll quickly see the students from Christian Brothers Academy earn community service hours by helping to sort, and bag the food getting it ready for the pantries to pick up that  afternoon. They work along side the adult volunteers to keep things running smoothly to complete this rather large task! Rumson Country Day School has always been a leader using the food collection as a school wide project. 


Food is sorted and distributed to local agencies on the day of the walk. By the start of the walk at 2:00 you'll see a field of yellow bags!

Rice, Beans and Peanut butter are the three main items in our food collection but we will also gladly accept cans of nutritious soup.

Beans 2855 lbs.
Rice 3,835 lbs.
Peanut Butter 1305 lbs.
Soup 835 lbs.
Other 720 lbs.
