History–One of the first walking events in Austin

The Austin CROP Hunger Walk has a long history here in the capital city.  The first official CROP Hunger Walk was held in Austin in 1970 and raised $5067–a large amount in those days.  Austin hosted CROP Hunger Walks off and on over the next few years: 1971, 1973, and 1976.

In 1979, the consecutive series of Austin CROP Hunger Walks began. Austin has hosted a CROP Hunger Walk every year from 1979 to 2015!  2017 marks our 39th anniversary for this community event.

Today—Austin’s largest interreligious event

The Austin CROP Hunger Walk is sponsored locally by i-ACT.  The Austin CROP Hunger Walk celebrates interreligious participation from six world religions in 2012—Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Unitarian Universalist, and Druze communities. Neighbors of different ages, faiths, and backgrounds—walking together.  It is a beautiful testimony of what makes Austin great!

You are welcome here—our various Walk Committees welcome any and all to become involved.  Your involvement will make us stronger.  For more information to see where you might best fit in, call 512-553-1671.
