Origins of the Christian Rural Overseas Program date back to 1947 after WWII when farmers were asked to donate excess food to the hungry. Organized by the Church World Service, the CROP Hunger Walks take place all over America to fund projects organized by the CWS to end hunger. In 2019, there have been over 100,000 participants in 800 walks that have raised over $7,600,000 to end world hunger. 25% of all the funds raised go back into the host community.
To register for a walk near you, the is a search tool on their website to locate the next walk closest to you.
In association with Cardinal Peter Turkson’s visit to OSU and his presentation with OSU President Michael Drake at Mershon Auditorium on Monday, Nov. 2, 2015, at 7:00pm, 100% of ticket proceeds will go towards supporting urban gardening projects in Columbus and in Accra, Ghana.
