Rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the Clus­ter Out­reach Cen­ter and var­i­ous Pottstown area con­gre­ga­tions will par­tic­i­pate once again in the an­nual CROP Walk for hunger on Sun­day, Oct. 14. For nearly half a cen­tury, CROP Hunger Walks have en­sured that more peo­ple world­wide have ac­cess to nu­tri­tious, sus­tain­able food sources. CROP Hunger Walks help end hunger by rais­ing funds to sup­port lo­cal food pro­grams and the in­ter­na­tional anti-hunger work of Church World Ser­vice. Last year, there were 900 walks and $9 mil­lion was raised by 107,000 walk­ers.

Sun­day’s walk will leave from First Pres­by­te­rian Church, 750 N. Evans St.. at 2 p.m. Reg­is­tra­tion be­gins at 1:30 p.m., and walkins are ac­cepted. Twen­ty­five per­cent of all the money raised by walk­ers goes di­rectly to the Clus­ter and 75 per­cent goes to fight hunger around the world through Church World Ser­vice.
