Boulder County CROP Walk Raises Money for Famine Organizations – Longmont Times-Call

Boulder County CROP Walk Raises Money for Famine Organizations – Longmont Times-Call

Last year, Community Food Share distributed nearly 13 million pounds of food. The demand for food increased 30% during the pandemic and has largely stayed steady at that level, said Community Food Share Outreach Coordinator Kyl Caragol. The rest of the money raised will go to Community Food Share, the food bank for Boulder and Broomfield counties. “It’s critical we remember these numbers are all people, family and friends,” he said.

About 75% of the money raised will go to CROP Walk founder Church World Service, while 1% goes to advocacy group Bread for the World. Church World Service began the walk after World War II in response to hunger in the United States and abroad. The Boulder County CROP Hunger walk is in its 36th year. So far, this year’s walk has raised about $23,000. Donations will continue to be accepted through December, with a goal of collecting $30,000.

“They’re a strong advocate for those suffering from poverty and hunger,” said Boulder County Crop Walk organizer Phil Goerner. Participants walk through a Longmont neighborhood during Sunday’s Boulder County CROP Hunger walk.(Amy Bounds/Staff Writer)

Dale Echnoz and his wife are regular volunteers with Longmont’s Homeless Outreach Providing Encouragement, or HOPE, and belong to Heart of Longmont Church. “I was just glad to have something else I could do to help out with the hunger situation,” he said.

“It’s an interfaith group,” Goerner said. “We all want to help those suffering from poverty and hunger. I think it’s fabulous.” Most of those who walk are members of the 17 participating Boulder County congregations. The location of the walk varies, but this year it started at the Heart of Longmont Church. Walkers could choose between a longer 5-mile route or a shorter 2-mile loop through the historic east neighborhoods of Longmont.
