Greater Greensboro CROP Hunger Walk

  • CROP Hunger Walk is the name given to community-based hunger education and fundraising events sponsored by Church World Service (CWS), a relief, development, and refugee resettlement agency operating in over 80 countries. Local walkers agree to walk 5 kilometers (3.1 miles) and raise funds to fight hunger. Of the monies raised, 75% goes to international causes funded by CWS and 25% goes to Potter's House, Greensboro Ministry's community kitchen.

  • To find out more, visit GUM's web site or call the CROP Walk Coordinator, Christine Byrd, at 336.271.5959 ext 339.
