Hunger is one of the greatest injustices facing our world, impacting families locally and globally. But it doesn't have to be that way. Ending hunger is possible, and it is possible in our lifetime. As the 8th best CROP walk in the nation in 2023 and over 2 million dollars in funds raised in the lifetime of the walk - we know we are making a substantial step forward in ending hunger.

The 2024 CROP Walk raises funds for and awareness of the ever-present food insecurity issues in Cook County and other U.S. and international areas! Portions of our CROP funds support Beyond Hunger, Community Fridge, Migrant Ministry, River Forest Proviso Pantry, and First Baptist Oak Park Food Pantry. CROP Walk funds also support global resilience efforts in 53 countries.
