CROP Walk raises funds for hunger

It’s not too late to join in Sonoma’s fifth annual CROP Hunger Walk, coming up this Sunday, April 6.

Hundreds of walkers will converge at noon on Sunday at the First Congregational Church/Congregation Shir Shalom, 252 W. Spain St., to register for the event. The first 100 persons to sign up will receive a commemorative CROP Walk T-shirt. The one- or three-mile walk begins at 1 p.m. All are welcome.

Veteran walker Judy Landa participated in CROP Walks for 10 years in Westport, Conn. This will be her fifth walk in Sonoma.

“It’s important that we raise awareness about global hunger and money to help end it,” she said. “I love the walks. I enjoy the community feeling and the camaraderie of hundreds of people marching together for one cause.”

Each year more than 1,500 CROP Walks are held throughout the United States under the auspices of Church World Service (CWS).
