Crop Hunger Walk

CROP began in 1947, under the wing of Church World Service (CWS), an organization which was founded only a year before, in 1946. CROP was an acronym for the Christian Rural Overseas Program. Its primary mission was to help Midwest farm families to share their grain with hungry neighbors in post-World War II Europe and Asia. The first CROP walk for hunger relief took place in 1970. It is the oldest and largest walk for hunger relief in the USA.


A quarter of the money raised by each of the 1,300 local walks stays right in the local community, helping to address hunger issues right where the money is donated. Often, our Hilltown Churches Food Pantry is one of the local groups that receives a portion of the money raised by our Franklin County walk.


CWS includes participation from a wide range of faith communities, and their mission has expanded greatly, but their core method of operation is to be there on the ground for the long haul, helping local communities build and sustain structures and systems they really need and want.


Our church participates annually in the Franklin County CROP Hunger Walk and our team's official name is ”Ashfield UCC”! 


United Church of Christ (UCC) is a distinct and diverse community of Christians that come together as one church to join faith and action.  With over 5,000 churches and nearly one million members across the U.S., the UCC serves God in the co-creation of a just and sustainable world.  The UCC is a church of firsts, a church of extravagant welcome, and a church where "…they may all be one" (John 17:21).
