Thank You For Supporting 

The 36th Annual

Charlotte CROP Hunger Walk 


 It's not too late to support the 2014 effort to raise $360,000 to end hunger locally and abroad!



Stand by!  We will announce the date for the 2015 Charlotte CROP Hunger Walk shortly!

We have filed all of the forms required by the city and Parks and Recreation and hope to announce the date for this year’s walk very soon.  We plan to have a very similar footprint as last year’s walk with pre-Walk activities in Independence Park and walkers exiting the park at 7th Street to start the walk.

We are in the process to close the books on the 2014 Walk, so this is final call for donations for last year!  Please get any remaining funds in as soon as you can.  If you have any questions or issues, call the CROP office at 704-333-9255 for assistance.
