CROP Walk Overview

  • What is a CROP Hunger Walk?“Neighbors walking together to take a stand against hunger in our world.  Together we raise awareness and funds for international relief and development.”

    • Ecumenical outreach opportunity for local churches

    • 25% of the money goes to local needs; 75% goes to global needs

  • Who organizes the CROP Hunger Walks?

    “Founded in 1946, Church World Service is a relief, development, and refugee assistance ministry. Working in partnership with indigenous organizations in more than 80 countries, CWS works worldwide to meet human needs and foster self-reliance for all whose way is hard.”


Through the CROP Hunger Walk, we help meet emergency and recovery needs in Haiti and around the world, and we support our local food banks. We’re helping families get back on their feet. Photo: ACT/Christian Aid

Putting It Into Perspective

  • Overone billion people (about one seventh of the world)do not have access to safe water and 2.4 billion don’t have access to improved sanitation

  • Over 800 million people lack adequate food

  • Every day, almost 16,000 children diefrom hunger-related causes – one child every five seconds

  • In Hamilton County, over 26,000 individualslive on food stamps and there are approximately 32 food pantries in the county

What We Can Provide

Who We Help Locally

25% of the money raised in our CROP Hunger Walk is distributed to local hunger-alleviating agencies in Greater Hamilton County. We donate the money to Good Samaritan Network, who distributes resources to the pantries with the greatest needs.

  • Sheridan Church of God Pantry$958.58

  • 13.1% of our children are food insecure (10,670 children)
