CROP Walk Supports Local Hunger Programs

25% of the funds raised support the following local hunger and food programs:

Feinstein Foundation Challenge

The Feinstein Foundation is committed to fighting hunger and will provide a limited amount of matching funds to walks that publicize the work of the foundation. Please mention to potential donors that the Feinstein Foundation will be matching donations to the CU CROP walk. The amount of the matching funds is based on the toal number of requests of all hunger organizations for the $1 million annual fund, tyically for our CROP walk this is at least several hundren dollars.
