BOULDER COUNTY CROP WALK

Posted by on Sep 17, 2020

Celebrate with our 35th annual Boulder County CROP Hunger walk to be held this year as a modified walk. Please join us on this family and pet-friendly event, donate, and help us “Feed His Sheep”!  Go to CropHungerWalk for more details
Funds raised from our Boulder County walk will benefit Church World Service, Bread for the World, and locally Community Food Share which serves Boulder and Broomfield counties.

Date: Culminating date October 25th, 2020
(but you can walk starting October 11th!)
-Raise funds
-walk when you can walk, with whom they feel comfortable walking
-walk with their households, in their own neighborhoods with family or friends. Indoor walks, CROP Rocks!, challenges, and more.

Community Food Share continues to disperse 1 million pounds of food each month! They will receive 24% of the funds this year’s Boulder CROP walk raises.

Bread for the World receives 1% of the funds. It is a grassroots organization that works to pass legislation that supports those in need. Members write letters, call, or even visit their congress folks to help them pass legislation like increasing funding and benefits for those receiving SNAP in the age of COVID. (Supplementary Nutrition Access Program, which used to be food stamps)

Finally, 75% of our funding goes to the international organization Church World Service which right now is preparing to help with disaster relief for both the terrible forest fires and Hurricane Sally. For disasters, they provide clean up kits, blankets, and long term recovery support, as well as globally working with hunger-related projects like sustainable water sources and more.

Sue Ericson reported that previous Boulder CROP WALK T-shirts are currently being sewn into grocery bags to be filled with food and distributed by folks at the Round Pantry in Longmont Colorado. Nancy Hurianek reports that the filled bags will hold groceries for as many as 700-800 families who visit EVERY 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of every month.
