“While the world’s poverty and pain can be overwhelming,” says Bridgewater College’s Chaplain Robbie Miller, “the CROP Meal and CROP Hunger Walk are simple yet significant steps anyone can take to make a very real difference in the lives of others.”

Some 2,000 communities are joining together in interfaith community CROP Hunger Walks around the theme “Ending Hunger One Step at a Time.” Local ministries share in the funds raised by the walks. Twenty-five percent of the proceeds from the CROP Meal and CROP Hunger Walk are given to the Bridgewater Area Inter-Church Food Pantry.

To reserve a CROP Meal or register for the CROP Hunger Walk, contact Miller at 540-828-5383 or via email at rmiller@bridgewater.edu
