CROP Walk

A short walk to make a BIG difference for those who are hungry!

The annual Washtenaw/Ann Arbor CROP Hunger Walk involves….

  • Walkers and supporters raising funds to help those who are hungry
  • People from various faiths and groups in a community wide event
  • Walkers of all ages walking a 1 or 5 mile route on a fall Sunday afternoon
  • Raised funds:
    25% support hunger relief efforts in our community
    75% supports worldwide hunger relief work of Church World Service

Our 2017 walk took place Sunday, October 15, 2017, however you can still support the project!

We invite you to join people from FUMC, friends and neighbors from all faiths and backgrounds to raise funds and awareness to help end hunger. Twenty-five percent of funds raised will help support the hunger relief efforts of the following local organizations: Avalon House, Community Action Network, Emmanuel House, Hope Clinic, Growing Hope, Packard Health, SOS Community Services and St. Andrew’s Breakfast Program. The remainder of the funds will support the worldwide hunger relief efforts of Church World Service.

We support this walk because hundreds of people in our community are walking to meal sites and pantries to find enough to eat; and people all over the world are walking to get water, to work in fields, or to collect firewood. We walk in solidarity with them and to make efforts to see that everyone has the nutrition they need to live a healthy and active life.

The Washtenaw/Ann Arbor CROP Hunger Walk is organized by Interfaith Council for Peace and Justice in Ann Arbor.
