CROP Walk for Hunger set for Oct. 2 in Lincoln

Join us for a scenic tour of the streets of Lincoln, Iowa, on Sunday, October 2 for the annual CROP Walk for Hunger! Meet at Salem Church of Lincoln at 1:30 p.m. All ages are welcome.

The Northwest Tama County Ministerial Association is planning its 2022 CROP Walk for Hunger Relief. Churches participating are Gladbrook United Methodist Church, Chapel Church, Christ Lutheran Church, Peace Church, Garwin United Methodist Church, and Salem Church of Lincoln, the host church. Crop Walks are ecumenical, interfaith community events. Twenty-five percent of funds raised will support the local food pantry. Undesignated funds help support hunger programs and disaster relief of Church World Service in the United States and around the world. In partnership, CWS supports self-help development, meets emergency needs, and helps address the root causes of poverty and powerlessness.

Millions of people around the world walk long distances every day: to get water for daily needs; to bring home food for their families; to find safe shelter in times of war or disaster; to find wood for fuel and fodder for livestock; to go to school; to farm distant fields; to take goods and produce to market; or to find medical care when illness strikes.

All ages, young and old alike, are welcome to join the Crop Hunger Walk on October 2nd. Donations can be turned in the day of the walk or dropped off at any of the participating churches. Checks can be made out to CWS/CROP.

If your community doesn’t have a CROP Walk, you are still welcome to participate. Put your faith on its feet and make a difference by joining the 2022 CROP Hunger Walk!
