The Marin CROP Hunger Walk, a 5 Kilometer (3.1 mile) walk, has two purposes: (1) to raise awareness about people around the world who must walk to find food, water, firewood, freedom and other necessities of life; and (2) to raise funds to help stop hunger wherever it exists.

Through the CROP Hunger Walks last year nearly $16 million was raised making a difference for people in need in Marin County and in over 80 countries worldwide.

Who Sponsors the CROP Hunger Walk?

The Marin CROP Hunger Walk is organized by caring people in Marin County, co-sponsored by the Marin Interfaith Council and Church World Service (CWS).



Each "CROP" event committee selects local organizations serving the hunger needs of the local community to receive 25% of the money raised through the walk.  The 2011 Marin CROP Hunger Walk recipients will be The Marin Community Food Bank, St. Vincent De Paul Society of Marin County, and Marin Street Chaplaincy.

75% of the funds aid in the work of Church World Service to:

  • Support sustainable self-help development projects - digging wells, providing tools and seeds, rebuilding homes, teaching trade skills through micro-enterprise loans;
  • Meet emergency needs, such as for survivors of the Central Valley freeze, floods, fires, and other natural and man-made disasters;
  • Aid refugees - providing hope for those from the Balkans, Afghanistan, Iran, Burma, Somalia, Sudan, Ukraine, Russia, Laos and Vietnam and other countries - resettling them in the U.S. through our regional affiliate offices;
  • Address the root causes of poverty and powerlessness
  • Designations may be made by sponsors to other humanitarian agencies on envelope and on request.
