The annual District of Columbia CROP Hunger Walk and Food Drive will be held on May 17, 2014 at Franklin Square Park (950 13th St NW) at 11 am. 
This year’s DC CROP (Communities Responding to Overcome Poverty) Hunger Walk encourages walkers to “start where they are,” wherever they are in the District, and meet up with neighbors at Franklin Square Park at 11am to raise money and food for local feeding programs. Walkers should register online at to start raising money now, and bring canned goods the day of the walk.  
This year’s beneficiary organizations will be DC Hunger Solutions and Capital Area Food Bank. This year’s canned goods will be donated to the Capital Food Bank.  
While walkers will come from all parts of the District, Southwest residents will gather at the Southwest Duck Pond at 9:30 a.m. to walk to Franklin Square.
We will see you at Franklin Square on May 17!
