Valley’s CROP Walk prepares to fight hunger Sunday
Walk and help end hunger on the Eastside and around the world at the Snoqualmie Valley CROP Hunger Walk, 12:45 p.m. Sunday, May 18, starting at Meadowbrook Farm, 1711 Boalch Ave. N.E., North Bend.
The annual CROP Hunger Walk—the acronym stands for Communities Responding to Overcome Poverty—is sponsored by Church World Services. The Snoqualmie Valley CROP Hunger Walk supports incredible anti-hunger work. Seventy-five percent of the funds support international relief and development, and the remaining 25 percent support the local work of the Snoqualmie Valley Food Bank. Last year’s walk raised $1,556 for the local food bank.
The walk is organized by the Snoqualmie United Methodist Church, Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic Church, St. Clare’s Episcopal Church and Mount Si Lutheran Church.
Walk-up registration is 12:15 p.m. A community barbecue follows the walk.
A fundraising car wash will be held at North Bend Les Schwab, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, May 17, the day prior to the walk. To learn more, register or join a team, visit www.eastsidecrophungerwalk.org.
