Trinity Episcopal Church, 119 Forest Avenue, Cranford, will be sponsoring walkers for the CROP Hunger Walk on Sunday October 22, 2017.

The Cranford CROP Hunger Walk will start at 1:45 PM at the Cranford United Methodist Church, 201 Lincoln Ave., Cranford (at the corner of Lincoln and Walnut Aves.). “Hunger is the greatest health risk in the world, killing more than AIDS, Malaria, and TB combined,” said Reverend Andy Kruger, Trinity’s Priest-in-Charge. Globally 795 million people don’t have enough to lead healthy, active lives. The donations to the Cranford CROP Hunger Walk will benefit the both global hunger fighting ministry of Church World Services and Cranford Family Care.

“We invite everyone to support this important cause by becoming a walker or by donating to the CROP Hunger Walk, Father Andy continued. Checks should be made out to ‘CWS/CROP’ and sent to Trinity Episcopal Church, 119 Forest Avenue, Cranford, NJ 07016.

CROP Hunger Walks were started in 1947 by Church World Services to help Midwest farm families share their grain with hungry families in post WWII Europe and Asia. Through the years the focus of CROP Hunger Walks has grown into fighting hunger and malnutrition world-wide. Church World Services was formed in 1946 by 17 denominations. Its mission is: Feed the hungry, clothe the naked, heal the sick, comfort the aged, and shelter the homeless. Church World Services also works to provide safe drinking water to the more than 1 billion who don’t have access to it and supporting communities with emergency relief.  For more information about CROP Hunger Walks or Church World Services, please visit
