It's spring!  That means CROP Hunger Walks are blooming across the country  blossoms of hope in a landscape of hunger.

The Blossomland CROP Hunger Walk of St. Joseph, Michigan, has been blooming for more than 25 years, reaching out to neighbors in need around the corner and around the world.  Last year's Walk was Blossomland's best ever, as they topped the $50,000 mark in funds raised.  Blossomland's 2010 event happened on May 16, and early indications are they may top 2009!

While the spring CROP Hunger Walk season will soon be coming to a close, plans for fall Walks are well underway.  To find the CROP Hunger Walk in your area, please visit www.cropwalkonline.org.  

If you are a CROP Hunger Walk coordinator and have additional details about your upcoming CROP Hunger Walk that you would like to have included on the Walk's page on our website, please send them to webwalk@churchworldservice.org. Thanks!
