34th Annual Northwest CT CROP Hunger Walk

Mary Taylor, Realtor, Litchfield County, CT

Sunday, September 24th is the 34th Annual Northwest CT CROP Hunger Walk. Registration and check-in begin at 1:00 pm in the parking lot of Housatonic Valley Regional High School (246 Warren Turnpike, Falls Village, CT). At 1:30 pm, walkers will begin their journey.

The Northwest Connecticut online team page can be found at crophungerwalk.org/fallsvillagect/. On that page, you can create your own team or join an existing one, register as an individual walker, sponsor a walker, and make a credit card donation.

CROP Hunger Walks support grassroots hunger-fighting efforts around the world. Up to 25% of the funds raised from the NW CT Walk is allocated to hunger-fighting programs in our own local community via the Northwest Connecticut Food Bank. The Food Bank provides food vouchers and gift certificates to area grocery stores for those in need.

In the past 30 years, participants have raised more than $732,000 with about $200,000 allocated to our local area.

    Salisbury:
    Whippoorwill Farm
    Weatogue Farm

    Sharon:
    Pine Hill Farm  860-364-0416
    Q Farms
    Paley’s Farm Market

    West Cornwall:
    Hautboy Hill Farm
    Ridgway Farm

    Cornwall Bridge:
    Stone Wall Dairy Farm

    The Canaans – Falls Village:
    Lone Silo Farm
