38th Annual Northwest CT CROP Hunger Walk Virtual for 2021

The 38th Annual Northwest CT CROP Hunger Walk will be held virtually from Wednesday, September 1st through Sunday, September 26, 2021. There may be a live version held on the 26th at Housatonic Valley Regional High School.

In past years over 500 people have gathered to walk, show their support  and raise money to fight hunger both locally and worldwide.

This year participants are asked to walk wherever and whenever they like from 8:00 am September 1st to 8:00 pm September 26th.

“The CROP Walk is more important now than ever. Food insecurity has
increased greatly for many people in our community and around the
world. Right now, many of our friends and neighbors are struggling to buy
food for themselves and their families.

A recent Crop Walk raised almost $40,000 to fight hunger both globally
and locally. Twenty-five percent of that total stayed in our community and
went directly to six local food pantries: *Fishes and Loaves, Corner Food
Pantry, Sharon Food Closet, NECC Food Pantry, St. Thomas’ Food Pantry and
the Kent Food Pantry* or was used in our unique voucher program.”

To register go to:
Or contact the Rev. Heidi Truax from Trinity Episcopal Church by emailing
