The walk is a major fundraiser to benefit the hungry both here locally in Boulder County, nationally and international as well. Funds are donated to Church World Service, Community Food Share and Bread for the World to combat hunger.

Update February 2014
Wow! What a great walk we had this year’s totals are now show that thanks to your hard work the 2013 Boulder CROP Hunger Walk raised $38,458! Much of the funds raised helped alleviate international hunger and poverty thanks to Church World Service, but a large percentage of this stayed right here in Boulder County to help long term flood relief. 24% of the remaining went to support Community Food Share and 1% went to support Bread for the World’s grassroot hunger relief legislative efforts.
We Walked Oct. 20th 2013!
