Our team is helping to end hunger one step at a time by participating in this year’s VIRTUAL (Due to COVID 19) CROP Hunger Walk.

The 41st Crop Hunger Walks is a community-wide event sponsored by Church World Service and organized by religious groups, businesses, schools and others to raise funds to end hunger in the U.S. and around the world. Every year a portion of the proceeds is donated to our pantry. Please support us by making a donation and join us on the VIRTUAL Walk!
