Thank you for supporting last year's 41st Annual Arlington CROP Hunger Walk. We raised $31,210 to feed the hungry.
This year the CROP Walk turns 50! On October 17, 1969, a thousand people in Bismarck, ND, walked in what may have been the start of the hunger walks related to CROP – and raised $25,000 to help stop hunger. As far as we know, York County, PA was the first walk officially called the CROP Walk for the Hungry – and that event has been continuous since 1970. Several other CROP Hunger Walks occurred soon thereafter, and before long there were hundreds of Walks each year in communities nationwide. Currently, well over 1,000 communities across the U.S. join in more than 800 CROP Hunger
Walks each year. More than five million CROP Hunger Walkers have participated in more than 36,000 CROP Hunger Walks in the last two decades alone.
Now in its 42nd year, the Arlington CROP Hunger Walk is one of the largest Walks in Virginia. During this time, we have raised over $1,000,000 to help feed hungry people, provide food and supplies for disaster zones, assist refugee settlement, and support sustainable agriculture. We give 25% to the Arlington Food Assistance Center. Your generosity helps so many people in so many ways.
