Thank you, CROP Walkers

A crowd of 4,000 turned out Sunday, Oct. 18, to support the Greater Greensboro CROP Hunger Walk. The beautiful cool weather set a fantastic stage for the Greensboro event, which is the nation’s second largest walk.

Since 1981 local congregations, companies, residents and service clubs have worked with Greensboro Urban Ministry and Church World Service to raise money to fight hunger, both here and abroad.

Last year’s walk raised more than $203,000, of which about $50,ooo remained in the community. Proceeds locally help fund the daily lunch at Greensboro Urban Ministry’s Potter’s House Community Kitchen. The kitchen offers a free daily lunch to anyone who is hungry and serves 400-500 men, women and families each day.
