Walkers sought for Hunger Crop Walk at Marion County Lake

Walkers are wanted for the 2014 Hunger Crop Walk starting at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 5, at Marion County Lake.

According to organizers, Crop Walks support the overall ministry of Church World Services, helping hunger-fighting development efforts in more than 80 countries.

The walks provide people with seeds and tools to wells and water systems and technical training and micro-enterprise loans.

In addition, each local Crop Walk can choose to return 25 percent of the money raised to local hunger-fighting programs.
