The Greater Lexington CROP (Communities Responding to Overcome Poverty) Hunger Walk is the heart and “sole” of Central Kentucky. It brings together people from all faiths and walks of life for a common goal: to end hunger, one step at a time, both around the corner and around the globe.
Registration for the 2017 walk starts at 3 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 24 at Second Presbyterian Church at the corner of East Main and Ransom streets.
The three-mile walk through Aylesford, Constitution and Historic East End begins promptly at 3:30 p.m. No registration fee, but donations are welcome. Bring cans of protein food to donate to God’s Pantry Food Bank, which receives 25 percent of the funds we raise.
Upon arriving, learn about the ONE campaign’s work against extreme poverty in Africa. Walk T-shirts will be sold. Stop by the art station to make a poster to carry while you walk. Our 30th anniversary walk goal is $30,000.
More than 1,000 communities participate in this program. We are making a huge difference, including ensuring more malnourished children reach their fifth birthdays, teaching sustainable ways to grow food and providing sources of food and income to families facing challenges.
