Hop on to Battle Starvation: Higher Greensboro CROP Starvation Stroll is October third | Eat Drink
GREENSBORO, NC – Hikers, runners and volunteers will join forces on Sunday, October 3, to tackle hunger locally and globally at the Greater Greensboro CROP Hunger Walk at the Greensboro Coliseum Complex.
Greensboro Urban Ministry (GUM) and Church World Service (CWS) have worked with the community since 1981 to present the Greensboro CROP Walk. The event raised more than $ 6 million to fight hunger and is the fifth largest hike in the United States.
While we held a virtual event last year, this year we’ll go back together while maintaining a safe social distance. Activities and the hike begin and end at the Greensboro Coliseum Complex, with the hike passing through the local neighborhood.
The Greater Greensboro CROP Walk is a 5 km (3.1 mile) community event that raises funds that are shared by GUM and CWS. Twenty-five percent of the walk revenue goes to Greensboro and supports the Potter’s House communal kitchen. Potter’s House serves over 400 men, women and families with children daily with no questions asked, no ID required.
Church World Service support funds nutrition, education, and farming programs around the world. These projects meet human needs and promote independence in countries around the world.
