The 2018 Metrocrest CROP Hunger Walk on Saturday, October 13, 2018 raises awareness and funds to fight hunger around the world and on a local level. A portion of the proceeds from the 2-mile Walk benefit the Metrocrest Services Food Pantry: register as walker or see what team is leading.
CROP Hunger Walks is a community-wide event sponsored by Church World Service and organized by local congregations and groups to raise funds and end hunger at home, and around the world.
For over 100 low-income seniors who qualify for People and Nutrition (PAN boxes filled with federal commodity foods), our Eat Smart, Live Strong is growing in popularity. With support from program sponsors we provide participants additional fresh produce and healthy foods on their monthly distribution day.
Eat Smart, Live Strong groceries include items such as sweet potatoes, fresh oranges and apples or canned peaches. Once a month participants arrive on their own at our food pantry or may request rides through our transportation service. Pantry volunteers not only assist seniors as they select their items but carry selections to their car or van.
Sponsors are needed to underwrite program costs! Join former sponsors Baylor Scott & White Medical Center Carrollton, PlainsCapital, Purdy-McGuire, Hilton Worldwide and Research Across America in supporting healthy eating for seniors.
