Woodinville, WA – The 5th annual Woodinville CROP Hunger Walk will be held on Saturday, Sept. 28. The walk route is an approximate 3-mile loop, beginning and ending at 21 Acres.

This year marks the 50th year people have been walking with the same goal; create “a world where every child has enough healthy food every day.” Some 2,000 cities and towns nationwide are joining together in community CROP Hunger Walks around the theme “Ending hunger one step at a time.”

Organizers are encouraging folks to walk with their families and friends or initiate a team to help raise funds to combat hunger.
The goal of the event is to raise $10,000 to combat hunger in the local community and around the world.

“Twenty-five percent of the funds raised will stay in Woodinville to help alleviate hunger locally, and 75 percent will go toward world-wide efforts to link people to sustainable and nutritious food sources” said Walk representative Lin Hagedorn.

The funds raised for the Woodinville community will be donated to Farms for Life and the YMCA Hunger Initiatives and Totes to Go Program.”
