Ames CROP Hunger Walk
The CROP Hunger Walk takes place in the Ames community during the fall of each year. Many SHOP members raise money and participate in the walk to end hunger.
According to the Church World Service, the main sponsor of the nationwide hunger walks, more than 2,000 communities participate in over 1,600 CROP Hunger Walks every year (Church World Service, 2012).
CROP Hunger Walks support the Church World Service ministry and their efforts to help eradicate global and local hunger. They provide food, water, and resources such as agricultural tools, seeds, and more in order to empower individuals to grow a multitude of crops.
The walks provide the unique option of returning up to 25% of the funds that the walk raises to be donated to local food pantries, community gardens, and other local hunger-fighting organizations. Individual donors can also choose to send their contribution to international agencies that fight worldwide hunger.
The CROP Hunger Walk is a wonderful opportunity to get involved in the Ames community, meet others who are passionate about making a change, and walk to eliminate hunger both in America and around the world.
