Ramona’s annual CROP Hunger Walk, sponsored by Church World Service and organized by First Congregational Church of Ramona, will step off at a new location this year — First Congregational Church, 404 Eighth St., on Sunday, May 18, at 12:30 p.m.
The walk is 5km — about 3.1 miles. Water stations will be provided along the way. The end of the route will return walkers to First Congregational Church, where participants will be treated to a free picnic lunch.
Ramonans have participated in the walk for approximately 20 years. CROP hunger walks help provide food and water as well as resources that empower people to meet their own needs — from seeds and tools to wells and water systems.
All are welcome to join people of different faiths, cultures and ages walking together to take a stand against hunger in the world and in Ramona.
