With its inception in 1969, CROP Hunger Walks are viewed by many as the granddaddy of charity walks. It started on October 17, 1969 when a thousand people in Bismarck, ND walked and raised $25,000 to help stop hunger. Currently, over 2,000 communities across the U.S. walk for hunger.
Where do CROP Hunger Walk funds go? They help support the overall ministry of Church World Service, especially grassroots, hunger-fighting development effort around the world. In addition, each CROP Hunger Walk can choose to return up to 25% of funds it raises to local hunger programs.
