Join us for the 29th annual Martha’s Vineyard CROP Hunger Walk. The full six-mile walk will begin and end at St. Augustine’s Church in Vineyard Haven with a half-way stop for refreshments and rest (and possible ending point) at Trinity Methodist Church in the Camp Ground in Oak Bluffs. Walkers may either plan to walk the full route, or plan to finish their walk in Oak Bluffs and take advantage of convenient shuttle service back to Vineyard Haven.
Over the course of our first 28 years, the MV CROP Hunger Walks have raised $498,643 to benefit the poor and hungry around the world and the those facing food insecurity on our own Island. This is the effort of hundreds of Vineyarders. This year we will certainly break half a million dollars, but we want to go far beyond that in the years to come. We believe we can make do that with your help and participation.
Twenty-five percent of the funds we raise will benefit the Island Food Pantry and the Vineyard Committee on Hunger in their services to the Island. The other funds will be used by Church World Service in the U.S. and globally for emergency food supplies, agricultural training, livestock, wells and pumps, farm seeds and farm equipment.
