“We walk in solidarity with people around the world who have to walk long distances for food and water,” he said. “We have cars and grocery stores but many people around the world have to travel by foot for their food; this walk is intended to honor their experience.”
CROP stands for Communities Responding to Overcome Poverty. The walk’s local sponsor is Mystic Area Ecumenical Society. Church World Service will receive 75 percent of the funds raised and Mystic Area Shelter and Hospitality will receive 25 percent.
