Walking to take a stand against hunger

Saturday, April 9th was a beautiful day in Vallejo for a walk to raise money locally and worldwide along the picturesque Mare Island Way Shoreline. Communities Responding to Overcome Poverty (CROP) Hunger Walks help fight hunger and poverty around the world including the United States and Haiti. Neighbors from different faiths, cultures, and ages walked together to take a stand against hunger in our world.

Together we raised awareness and funds for international relief and development as well as local hunger-fighting agencies such as the Food Banks! Hungry people in developing countries typically walk as much as six miles a day to get food, water and fuel to take their goods to market. We walked to be in solidarity with their struggle for existence.

A perfect ending to this event was the concert on Sunday night, April 10th. A full house enjoyed all types of music and singing from Frances Fanilli (Harpist), Resonance with Elisabeth and James, Debbie, Ken and Brenda from First Church of the Nazarene and Singing by John Grose.
