Every year, we come together to help fight hunger in our community and around the world through the CROP Hunger Walk. This year, you are invited to walk with other passionate individuals in Charlotte dedicated to ending food insecurity in our community.
Part of a nationwide effort led by Church World Service, Charlotte CROP Hunger Walk is an opportunity for Charlotte residents of all ages, faiths, and circumstances to join together to demonstrate their concern for those who do not have enough food to eat, both across the globe and in our own backyard. The concept is simple: Ending hunger one step at a time.

Independence Park. The walk is 4.1 miles in length, representing the average distance people in third world countries must walk to obtain clean water.
Since its first walk in 1978, Charlotte has raised almost $8 million to relieve hunger. Twenty-five percent stays here in Charlotte-Mecklenburg to help Crisis Assistance Ministry, Loaves & Fishes and Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina provide relief to people in need.
Stand with those in our community in need and walk to share your commitment to ending hunger. It’s a family and pet-friendly event.
Sign up to join our team HERE or come the day of the walk.
