The Greater Greensboro CROP Hunger Walk is a 5k (3.1 miles) community event that raises funds to fight hunger. 25% of the funds raised go to Potter’s House Community Kitchen at Greensboro Urban Ministry. With the 75% going to Church World Service to meet human needs and foster self-reliance in over 80 countries.
Thanks to everyone who walked the 2016 CROP Hunger Event! We received over $159,000 in donations! Thank you for helping us reach our goal.
If you would like to help, please donate online at GreaterGreensboroCropWalk.org. Since 1981, the Greensboro CROP Hunger Event has raised over $5.5 million with more than $1.33 million going to our Potter’s House.
