You can take steps against hunger.
That’s what dozens of people will be doing in downtown Everett Sunday afternoon during the annual CROP Hunger Walk.
“CROP” stands for Communities Responding to Overcome Poverty. The fundraiser is sponsored by Church World Service.
Many different faith communities in the Everett area have participated in the walk since it started here in 1984.
Walkers carry signs and wear CROP walk T-shirts to promote their cause and collect pledges.
They welcome questions as a chance to raise awareness of worldwide poverty and hunger.
Another walk is planned in Snohomish the following Sunday, Oct. 9.
Here is more information:
In Everett, walkers meet at 12:30 p.m. Sunday at First Presbyterian Church, 2936 Rockefeller Ave. The 3-mile walks starts at 1 p.m. A barbecue is planned afterward.
In Snohomish, registration begins at 1 p.m. Oct. 9. There will be a 1-mile and a 5-mile walk. Walkers are invited to share soup and bread after the event.
