You are invited to join the 5K CROP Hunger Walk May 5. This sponsored walk is to raise awareness and funds for local hunger fighting agencies and international relief and development programs, through Church World Service. Registration and the walk begins at Christ United Methodist Church, 4th and I St., SW, travels through several neighborhoods of Southwest, and concludes at St. Augustine’s Episcopal Church, 6th and M St. SW.
CROP Hunger Walks take place in 2,000 communities all across the United States, raising $16 million dollars in 2010, to fight hunger in the United States and around the world. The DC Walk contributes 25 percent of money raised to Martha’s Table and DC Hunger Solutions, an advocacy organization, plus contributes canned goods for the food pantry of Edgewood/ Brookland Family Support Collaborative, serving Wards 5 and 6.
Last year, more than150 walkers raised over $17,000 through the Washington DC CROP Hunger Walk. This year’s goal is to increase walkers by 25% and amount raised by 10%.
