Durham CROP Hunger Walk

Duke's Chapel UMC is proud to be a long-term supporter of the Durham CROP Hunger Walk. The Durham CROP Hunger Walk is an annual event which combines fun and fundraising to raise money for hungry people throughout the world. Members of Duke's Chapel UMC both walk in the event and pledge to support walkers as we gather resources for this worthy cause.  

Donations are used to support hunger alleviation programs. Money raised is split between two organizations. 75% goes to Church World Service and 25% stays in Durham County and is used by Durham Congregations in Action (DCIA) to help our neighbors in need.  In order to best serve the most vulnerable in our county, DCIA then allocates the 25% to twelve hunger fighting agencies in Durham, which include:

  • Urban Ministries of Durham
  • Changing a Generation Outreach
  • Food Bank of Central and Eastern NC
  • Genesis Home
  • Housing for New Hope
  • Interfaith Hospitality Network
  • Partners for Youth Opportunity
  • Meals on Wheels
  • Mt. Calvary UCC Food Pantry
  • Society of St. Andrew
  • Threshold Clubhouse
  • Double Bucks for SNAP

Since it's inception, the Durham CROP Hunger Walk has raised over $4,000,000 to help fight hunger!  Come walk with us as we learn what it means to be the feet of Christ!
