The Traverse City Crop Hunger Walk took place on Oct. 9, and we had plenty of Old Mission Peninsula residents representing us.
The gang from Old Mission Peninsula United Methodist Church raised $565 for the cause, which helps to support the ministry of Church World Service, especially grassroots development efforts around the world. In addition, each local CROP Hunger Walk can choose to return up to 25 percent of the funds it raises to hunger-fighting programs in its own community.

CROP Hunger Walks help to provide food and water, as well as resources that empower people to meet their own needs. From seeds and tools to wells and water systems, the key is people working together to identify their own development priorities, their strengths and their needs.
