Help us FIGHT WORLD HUNGER.
CROP Hunger Walks are community-based walk fundraising events held in cities and towns across the United States, created to support the global 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. After a CROP Hunger Walk ends, 25% of the funds raised are returned to the host community to support local hunger-fighting efforts.
The Crop Project began in 1947 when farmers were asked to donate food and seed crops to our hungry neighbors in post-World War II Europe and Asia. The first CROP Hunger Walks took place in Bismarck, North Dakota (1969), and York, Pennsylvania (1970). Since then, CROP Hunger Walk events have been held in hundreds of communities, large and small, raising millions of dollars to eradicate hunger and poverty.
Hunger is one of the greatest injustices facing our world, but it doesn’t have to be this way. Ending hunger is possible in our lifetime. You can help make it happen. We're participating in the 2022 CROP Hunger Walk to support Church World Service and help families who are struggling with hunger. Please join us - with your steps and your donations - to provide more meals for the growing number of people in our community who need them, and create greater food security in communities around the world.
On Sunday, September 25, we walk through Birmingham, beginning at 1:30 p.m. at First United Methodist Church. Every year, the Bloomfield-Birmingham participants hold a fun competition to see which local church can raise the most money; last year the Kirk came through with flying colors! The Heart and Sole golden “shoe” trophy is sitting in the Kirk house. We’re hoping to keep the trophy and make a HUGE contribution to make sure everyone has food to eat!
