Facts for Action:

-1.3 billion people, 20% of the human family, live in absolute poverty with incomes of less than a dollar a day.  World Bank

- 828 million people are hungry - more than the population of the Western Hemisphere.  FAO

"The Crop Walk is a unique response to the needs of poor and hungry people in our own communities and around the world. And the spirit of cooperation that results when people of all faiths join together is both inspiring and invaluable."

"After going to services, Crop Walk gives people the chance to turn outward, to put into practice what they have heard. Crop Walk makes it easy for all to get involved."
           - Rabbi Carl Astor, Congregation Beth El, New London, CT
