Annual CROP Hunger Walk on Sunday

    SPARTA — The Sparta Ecumenical Council invites everyone to join in a brisk walk on Sunday, Oct. 30, with the Sparta CROP Hunger Walk. Registration is 1:30 p.m. and the walk begins at 2 p.m. at The Methodist Church in Sparta. The CROP Hunger Walk contributes to the vital self-help development programs for which Church World Service has been known for over 64 years. Church World Service is working around the world, but 25 percent of what is raise in Sparta will go to the Ecumenical Food Pantry, to help neighbors right here in Sparta and Sussex County. The CROP Walking will help families in Kenya tap into new sources of clean water, assist refugees from Burma as they struggle to survive in camps along the Thai/Burma border, enable families in Guatemala to grow more and better food, and assist communities working to recover from storms in parts of the United States.
