• CROP Hunger Walk

    Sunday April 14, 2024

    Location: Greenbelt
    Contact: Owensboro Daviess County Ministerial Association

    This is an annual fellowship walk to raise funds to feed the hungry and provide assistance for disasters. CROP is the hunger arm of Church World Service, an international ecumenical organization with interfaith partners. CWS provides insurance for the event. ODCMA provides volunteers to keep track of walkers on walk day. Participants register and sign their release for participation online in advance. They make a commitment to walk a certain distance (up to 3 miles.) They also collect their pledges online so no money is collected at the event. On the day of the walk, we gather at the park to meet each other before stepping off. We invite the local grant recipient (Yellow Creek Baptist, this year) to offer a prayer to start the event. Then participants walk the park path as many times as they have promised—up to 3 miles. One of the churches will provide oranges, bottled water, and crackers for walkers. After everyone is finished, the volunteers check for garbage and leave.
