Make a difference in hunger locally and globally by participating in CROP Walk


Thursday, May 16th, 2013
Issue 20, Volume 17.


FALLBROOK – The 22nd annual Fallbrook CROP Walk (Communities Responding to Overcome Poverty) returns Sunday, June 2 to raise funds for hunger relief. The Fallbrook CROP Walk is one of the most successful in the western United States and continues to grow in size each year. This non-competitive event for all ages is easy to participate in, and the benefits to those less fortunate are practical and tangible.

The focus of CROP is about interfaith hunger awareness and fundraising, both around the world and within this country. Nearly one billion people now live in poverty worldwide while with around 18,000 children die every day from hunger-related causes. In the U.S., nearly 43 million don’t have enough to eat, but hunger is preventable.

The CROP Hunger Walk involves more than 2,000 communities each year – a mix of faiths, community groups, individuals and schools. Around 25 percent of the money raised fights hunger in each Advertisement

of these communities, with the remainder supporting the people around the world to have enough food to eat and clean water to drink – and allowing children to have the best start at life possible.

All are welcome to participate with their family, church group, neighbors, business or favorite organization. They can bring children, walk their dog or even a llama or pony. They can choose to jog or run the short 5K course through town, and know as they participate in this simple event, that they are helping to make a difference in the lives of many people here and around the world.

On June 2, CROP Walk registration will start at 1 p.m., with the walk starting at 1:30 p.m. The

5K walk through downtown begins and ends at Fallbrook Food Pantry, 1042 S Mission Rd. For more information, call Fallbrook Food Pantry at (760) 728-7608, or visit www.fallbrookfoodpantry.org.
