HAVE FUN MAKING A DIFFERENCE LOCALLY AND GLOBALLY
The 22nd annual Fallbrook CROP Walk (Communities Responding to Overcome
returns June 2nd to raise funds for hunger relief.
The Fallbrook CROP Walk is one of the most successful in the western United States and continues to grow in size each
year. This non- competitive event for all ages is easy to participate in, and
the benefits to those less fortunate are practical and tangible.
• Nearly 1 billion people now live in poverty worldwide. • In the U.S., nearly 43 million don’t have enough to eat. • Around 18,000 children die every day from hunger-related causes.
•Hunger is preventable.
The focus of CROP is about interfaith hunger awareness and fundraising, both around
the world and within our own country. The first CROP Hunger Walk was in the
1960s. It is the oldest hunger-fighting fundraising event in the U.S. It
involves more than 2,000 communities each year – a mix of faiths, community
groups, individuals and schools. Around 25 percent of the money raised fights hunger in each of these communities, with the remainder supporting the people around the world to have enough food to eat and clean water to drink – and allowing children to have the best start at life
Come with your family, church group, neighbors, business or favorite organization. Bring the babies and the children. Walk your dog- or even your llama or pony. If you prefer, jog or run the short 5K course through town. And know as you participate in this simple event, that you are helping to make a difference in the lives of many people here and around the world.
