UMC & CROP Hunger Walks (Church World Service)

The 2021 National Christian Rural Overseas Program (CROP) Hunger Walk will take place on World Food Day, October 16, in an effort to end hunger in the U.S. and around the world.

Walk on your treadmill, in your neighborhood, in a park with friends – you choose the location and the experience. Walk one day – 3.7 miles (the average distance a woman walks for water) or take the Weekend Challenge and walk 11.1 miles (3.7 miles for 3 days).

Every step you take, every dollar you raise makes the walk shorter for neighbors in need by providing clean water, emergency food as well as livelihoods and access to education.

The CROP Hunger Walk is a nation-wide event raising funds to support the mission of Church World Service, a faith-based organization transforming communities around the globe through just and sustainable responses to hunger, poverty, displacement and disaster.
