For 30 years, the Barrington Area CROP Hunger Walk has been an advocate against hunger.
This year will be no different when the Community Response to Overcome Poverty (CROP) Walk steps off at 1 p.m. Sunday, October 20 at Lutheran Church of the Atonement, 909 E. Main St., Barrington. Registration begins at 12:30 p.m.
Longtime volunteer Betty Reed will be the Grand Marshall.
The CROP Hunger Walk raises funds for people in need in Barrington area communities and around the world.
Church World Service sponsors the walk. The agency provides ecumenical relief, development and refugee resettlement that also provides assistance in the U.S. and around the world. Churches, schools, civic organizations, businesses and individuals in the Barrington area support the Walk.
Twenty-five percent of all funds raised in Barrington stays in the area benefiting the Northern Illinois Food Bank, the FISH Food Pantry, Carpentersville, BACOA Meals With Wheels, Wauconda-Island Lake Food Pantry, Project HOPE, Palatine Township Food Pantry, the People in Need program of the Barrington Area Ministerial Association and Barrington Giving Day.
