CROP Walk 2022

Last year the Great Prairie Trail CROP Hunger Walk raised $27,000 to support local food pantries and Church World Service with hunger relief efforts locally and around the world. This was more than we had raised annually in the past ten years and is a testament to the increased need for food assistance and the generosity of our sponsors and walkers.

CROP Walk 2021

Thank you to all our walkers and donors! 

We raised over $1,200 to fight hunger locally and around the world.
