CROP Hunger Walks bring the whole community together in a common mission: helping hungry people at home and around the world. CROP Hunger Walks are fund-raising events designed to raise awareness and funds for people here and abroad who lack access to food, clean water, and basic necessities. CROP Walks are community, interfaith, ecumenical, hunger-relief events.

The North Shore CROP Hunger Walk is composed of a committee of planners, and liaisons from area congregations, houses of worship, schools, Scouts, neighborhoods and others, who recruit and encourage the participation of Walkers and donations from Walkers’ Sponsors. The North Shore CROP Hunger Walk raises funds specifically for Soup at Six (at Hemenway United Methodist Church Evanston); InterFaith Action of Evanston’s Hospitality Center for the Homeless; Second Baptist Church Tuesday Soup Kitchen; The ARK in Rogers Park; and A Just Harvest in Rogers Park. The remaining 75% of funds raised each year in the annual North Shore CROP Hunger Walk goes to support the work of the sponsoring organization, Church World Service.

This year’s CROP Hunger Walk will start at 2 p.m. and finish at 4 p.m. at First Congregational Church, 1445 Hinman Ave.
