10/24/2020

The annual CROP Hunger Walk to be held on Sunday, November 1st at 2 pm.

Online PR News – 24-October-2020 – Jacksonville, FL – The Arlington CROP Hunger Walk to be held on Sunday, November 1st at 2 pm at Ed Austin Park on Monument (Cobblestone area) with registration at 1:30 p.m. Bottled water provided. Even though we walk outside on a well- maintained walkway, please wear a mask. Dogs and children are encouraged to join us.

Looking to make a difference in our local community and in communities worldwide, the Arlington CROP Hunger Walk has set a goal of 75 Walkers and hopes to raise $2,000 to help end hunger and poverty through long-term sustainable approaches to significantly reduce or eliminate hunger. A portion of the funds raised here in Arlington will go to the hunger-fighting work of our food pantry of Arlington Community Services.

Last year, 55 Walkers raised more than $1,500 through this CROP Hunger Walk.

This year Jacksonville-Arlington and some 1,000 other communities nationwide are joining together in interfaith CROP Hunger Walks around the theme "Ending hunger one step at a time." Many of the Walkers will be wearing t-shirts proclaiming their solidarity with the millions of neighbors around the world who have to walk to live -- as well as with the millions served by local food pantries, food banks and meal sites here in the U.S. These local ministries share in the funds raised by CROP Hunger Walks.

From combating droughts in Nicaragua to providing agricultural training in Indonesia to stocking shelves in hundreds of food pantries across the United States, CROP Hunger Walks are fighting hunger.
