CROP Walk on Sunday will battle hunger

By The Spokesman-Review
 

April is Hunger Awareness Month, and the Interfaith Council is helping area Christians take steps toward fighting hunger both locally and globally.

This year’s CROP Walk is Sunday at Martin Centre on the Gonzaga University campus, 502 E. Boone Ave.

The 27th annual walk begins at noon with registration and with entertainment by Kids & Company.

Twenty-five percent of the proceeds will benefit local charities, Second Harvest Food Bank, the Interfaith Hospitality Network, Mid-City Concerns Meals on Wheels and Spokane Valley Meals on Wheels. Participants are asked to bring nonperishable food items to donate to Second Harvest.

The other 75 percent of the proceeds will be distributed globally for hunger relief and education.
