a community wide event organized by local congregations and groups to raise funds to end hunger at home and around the world
Eighteen walkers from Emmanuel Baptist Church participated in the NorthWest Bergen CROP Walk on October 16, 2016 to increase awareness and raise funds to end hunger. Emmanuel delivered twenty-two jars of peanut butter and an additional two full bags of food for donation to the Center for Food Action.
CROP walks started in 1969. One of the sayings is “We walk because They walk” in reference to the number of people around the world who have to walk to reach clean water and obtain food. Currently, there are over 1,000 walks across the USA, and Emmanuel participates in the Northwest Bergen walk.
