CropLogoPeople from every faith tradition and walk of life are concerned about hunger. Interfaith Works co-sponsors the Thurston County CROP HUNGER WALK each year on the first Sunday of May.

Volunteer walkers raise funds for local hunger-relief organizations and to fund humanitarian projects around the world.

Global Recipients

Our CROP Hunger Walk shows our love and active concern for neighbors in need near and far, raising awareness and funds to change the world in real and measurable ways — digging wells that will bring clean water to villages; providing seeds and tools so that people can grow their own food; helping communities and families rebuild after disaster; and refugee resettlement. Whether it’s responding to flood and tornado damage in parts of the U.S., or helping to rebuild earthquake-damaged homes in Haiti, Chile, and Japan, CROP Hunger Walks are making a difference.
