Goshen's CROP Hunger Walk on Sunday

Goal is 20 or more walkers, raising $2,000

GOSHEN — Organizers of the Goshen 2014 CROP Hunger Walk have set a goal of 20 walkers and hopes to raise $2,000 to help stop hunger and poverty locally and around the world through self-help initiatives.

A portion of the funds raised in Goshen will go to the The Window, a help non-profit that provides food and clothing to the poor.

The CROP Walk will take place Sunday at Shanklin Park in Goshen.

Registration will start at 1:30 p.m. Mayor Allan J. Kauffman will speak at 1:50 p.m. and the walk will begin at 2 p.m.

And since it’s the day before Cinco de Mayo, there will be a marachi band performing.

So far, $425 has been raised online locally.

This year Goshen and some 2,000 cities and towns nationwide are joining together in interfaith community CROP Hunger Walks around the theme “Ending hunger one step at a time.”

For more information about The Window Inc., 223 South Main St., Goshen, go online to facebook.com/thewindowgoshen.

Three Goshen elementary schools — Chandler, Chamberlain and West Goshen — are providing free meals to all students during the school year as part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Community Eligibility Provision of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. Nearly 80 percent of students at Chandler, 89 percent of students at Chamberlain and 78 percent of students at West Goshen already qualify for free or reduced-price lunches based on their family income. How do you feel about the new lunch program?
