The 2016 Greater Triangle Area CROP Hunger Walk will take place at Broughton High School in Raleigh. Registration starts at 2pm and step-off is at 3pm. This is the 36th year for CROP in Raleigh. During that time, the walk has raised over $1.6 million to help feed hungry people, provide food and supplies for disaster zones, assist refugee settlement, and support sustainable agriculture. Want to get involved? Become a team captain, join an existing team, sponsor the event, or become a prayer partner. Come play and learn before the Walk. Each benefiting agency will have a booth showcasing the programs you help fund with the money raised at the CROP Hunger Walk. There will be child-friendly activities including face painting, a drum circle and banner making. Snacks and drinks will be provided at the end of the walk. This walk is open to all people and friendly, four-legged friends!

New this year: Kid's Walk will be held during the walk, but on the Broughton track. There will be a variety of activities for the children to partake in while they walk. The 2016 local benefitting agencies are Catholic Parish Outreach, Dorcas Ministries, The Food Bank of Central and Eastern N.C., Inter-Faith Food Shuttle, North Raleigh Ministries and Urban Ministries of Wake County. Sponsors, Friends and Partners for the Greater Triangle Area CROP Hunger Walk include Fairmont UMC, Hillyer, Holy Trinity and Insomnia Cookies. CROP Hunger Walks help children and families worldwide - and right here in N.C. - to have food for today, while building for a better tomorrow. Local efforts are making a huge difference, and so can you.
