Each year, members of UUCF walk to fight hunger both in our community and around the world by participating in the CROP Walk .
This year, UUCF members will gather with others in our community at the First United Methodist Church in downtown Farmington for this cause. Join us to support the CROP Hunger Walk on Sunday, May 5th at 1 pm.
Sign up to be a walker or donate to the team!
CWS and CROP Hunger Walks
CROP Hunger Walks are community-based walk fundraising events held in cities and towns across the United States, created to support the global mission of Church World Service, a faith-based organization transforming communities around the globe through just and sustainable responses to hunger, poverty, displacement and disaster. After a CROP Hunger Walk ends, 25% of the funds raised is returned to the host community to support local hunger fighting efforts.
The Crop Project began in 1947 when farmers were asked to donate food and seed crops to our hungry neighbors in post-World War II Europe and Asia. The first CROP Hunger Walks took place in Bismarck, North Dakota (1969), and York, Pennsylvania (1970). Since then, CROP Hunger Walk events have been held in hundreds of communities, large and small, raising millions of dollars to eradicate hunger and poverty.
