The St. Paul CROP Hunger Walk is an annual event, sponsored by Church World Service, to raise funds to fight hunger in St. Paul and around the world. We invite individuals and groups to participate in this walk and raise funds and awareness about hunger in the process.
Twenty-five percent of the money raised goes to Interfaith Action’s Department of Indian Work food shelf, and the remainder is used to support Church World Service’s hunger relief efforts in areas most in need throughout the world.
Join the CROP Hunger Walk Committee
Committee meetings are for anyone who is interested in helping with overall event planning and/or leading their own CROP Walk team at their faith community or organization.
