The Crop Walk is held to raise funds to prevent poverty and hunger in El Dorado County, the U.S.
and around the world.

It is sponsored by Church World Services. CROP stands for: Communities Responding to Overcome Poverty.

Church World Service is a cooperative ministry of churches and religious organizations working to
eradicate hunger and poverty — providing sustainable development, disaster relief and refugee
assistance around the world.

Twenty-five percent of the money raised will remain in El Dorado County and will support three non-profits.

The El Dorado County Food Bank, the Upper Room and Mercy Way Rescue are the three local recipients this year.

For many years the Food Bank has operated to feed those in need in the county. It has generously provided snacks for the CROP Walk at the half-way point of the walk.

The Upper Room in Placerville operates 365 days a year, with an evening meal, as well as take-out lunches.

Mercy Way Rescue is a non-denominational church spreading the good news of Jesus Christ
to the poor, homeless, hungry, mentally ill and addicted people of El Dorado County. It is located on Broadway near The Upper Room.

Walkers will leave the park and head down Sacramento Street, to Main Street, up to Broadway and to the TWC Tracker Supply Co. Parking lot.

After the snack break the procession continues back to the park using the same route.

To participate, sign up as a walker and get sponsors to support your walk. Online donations are available through crophungerwalks.org/eldorado/.

The following churches are supporting the walk: Federated Church of El Dorado County, St. Patrick Catholic, Mercy Way Rescue and Episcopal Church of Our Saviour.

Walk-up registrations on Oct. 13 will be accepted with a donation of a minimum of $20
