On Sunday, Sept. 25, the 34th Annual Northwest CT CROP Hunger Walk will be held to raise funds to address hunger locally and globally. Registration and check-in begin at 1 pm in the parking lot of Housatonic Valley Regional High School in Falls Village, CT. At 1:30 pm, walkers, strollers, and joggers can choose routes ranging from .25 to 10 miles—or any distance in between. Refreshment stops will be available along the route.
CROP Hunger Walks are interfaith hunger education and fundraising events. To join the walk, register online at CROP Hunger Walk.
Up to 25% of funds raised from the NW CT Walk is allocated to hunger-fighting programs in our community via the Northwest Connecticut Food Bank which provides food vouchers and gift certificates to area grocery stores for those in need.
In the past 20 years, the Northwest Connecticut CROP Walk has raised over $473,000. Of that total almost $120,000 has stayed in the local area to alleviate hunger in the local area.
