Ending Hunger One Step at a Time

Teams gather at Dunbar Recreation Center before the walk.

Teams gather at Dunbar Recreation Center before the walk.

For many Americans, when the topic of hunger arises, one usually thinks “What do I want to eat?” or “Where should I get food from?”, but for 800 million people in the world the thought they have each and every day is, “Will I eat today?”Adequate food and water is something that many take for granted.  Thankfully, there are non-profit organizations that make it their mission to help those who are food insecure.

Recently, the Hays County Food Bank partnered with Church World Service to host the annual, Hays County CROP Hunger Walk.  CROP, is an acronym for Community Response to Overcoming Poverty.  Church World Service is a global relief aid organization that has helped people in need all over the world for the past 68 years. This event is held every year to raise money and awareness for local and global food insecurity.

With our hunger-statistics-signs held high and our favorite vegetable and fruit costumes on, we took to the streets of San Marcos to bring attention to the #1 health risk in the world, hunger.  Churches and businesses from all over the greater Hays County area came out to participate in our walk to end hunger.    Read more »
