Every October, participants in Addison County’s CROP Hunger Walk raise awareness and money to relieve food insecurity in our community and around the world. The need grows ever greater as the coronavirus pandemic puts increasing financial pressure on families. Despite COVID-19, organizers ramped up efforts in Addison County to provide nutritional resources for food shelves and programs.
While the pandemic prohibited the usual format of a large community walk on a single day, this year’s CROP Hunger Walk was reimagined so that individual walkers and small pods created their own walks under the auspice of CROP Hunger Walk, which is a program of Church World Services and Addison County CROP Hunger Walk. As of Wednesday walkers reported $8,450 had been raised.
