50th Anniversary of the CROP Walk: Ending World Hunger One Step at a Time

October 6, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


The CROP Hunger Walk is a community-organized charity event that takes place in over 800 locations each year. This year, in celebration of the 50thanniversary of the CROP Walk, several leaders at Church World Services (CWS) will set out on a 100 Mile Hunger Walk to raise awareness and funds to end hunger, poverty, and displacement from disasters around the world. This 100-mile trek will begin at The Riverside Church immediately following worship on October 6 and we invite the entire congregation to participate; whether you join for the first 5 steps or the first mile. Thanks to generous partners and donors, by downloading the CWS app to your smart device, each step you take will translate to more money being donated to relief programs around the world.
