Walking to fight world hunger

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIt’s not too late to join in Sonoma’s 5th Annual CROP Hunger Walk, coming up on Sunday, April 6, as hundreds of walkers converge on the First Congregational Church/Congregation/Shir Shalom at 252 W. Spain St. The Sonoma walk is one of over 1,500 held throughout the United States under the auspices of Church World Service to fight worlds huger.

“It’s important that we raise awareness about global hunger and money to help end it,” said Judy Landra, who will have participated in all the Sonoma walks after completing 10 in Connecticut. “I love the walks, I enjoy the community feeling and the camaraderie of hundreds of people marching together for one cause.”

In the next few weeks, nine other Bay Area communities will hold CROP Walks with the combined goal of having over 4,000 walkers raise $300,000. Registration begins at noon, with a one or three mile walk beginning at 1 pm. All are welcome. The first 100 persons to sign up will receive a commemorative T-shirt. 326.4742. Bayareahungerwalk.org.
