What are CROP Hunger Walks? They are community-wide events sponsored by Church World Service and organized by local congregations to raise funds to end hunger at home and around the world. What does CROP mean?
Communities Responding to Overcome Poverty
In parts of Cambodia and around the world, your steps in the CROP Hunger Walk can turn into nutritious, green leafy vegetables. “I now have vegetables for eating and don’t have to buy them from the market or neighbors, so I can save a bit of money,” says Eam Ean, a widow who is supporting her four children and an elderly mother. Ean’s
is one of 90 families in Preah Vihear Province who received seeds for planting gardens through Church World Service. Through CWS, the families also learned to place fences around their gardens to prevent animals from eating their crops. And they are weeding and watering their gardens regularly. The result: More food for everyone. Some other ways your small steps can make a big difference:
$25 can provide a farm family with everything they need to make succulent, nutritious honey -- hives, training, equipment.
$50 can provide 400 lbs. of much-needed food for a local church-run food pantry, or seeds and tools for three families.
$100 can provide 250 cute and useful baby chicks, who will grow up to be egg-producing chickens
