Every day, 16,000 children worldwide die from hunger related causes. All ages are invited to “end hunger one step at a time” by joining the Hamilton County CROP Hunger Walk on Sunday, October 14. Walkers may select to participate in the one-mile or 3.7-mile route in an effort to raise awareness and funds to help feed the hungry locally and around the world. Those unable to attend may participate as a virtual walker. The goal for the 2012 CROP Walk is to raise $36,000 and be able to provide the equivalent of nine semi-trucks worth of food to local food pantries. In 2012, so far the 32 Hamilton County food pantries have had an estimated 30-35% increase in needs compared to 2011. To register, or for more information, visit www.churchworldservice.org.
