Crop Walk set for Oct. 6 at Big Rock Park

The 25th annual Community Interfaith Crop Walk will take place on Sunday, Oct. 6, at Big Rock Park. The park is at Rhodes Avenue and Sixth Street in Big Rock. Sign-in is at 1:15 p.m. The walk will step off at 2 p.m.

A number of churches in Sandwich, Somonauk, Leland, Hinckley and Big Rock will participate. If you would like to walk without a participating church, feel free to contact another church in your area to sign up.

Twenty-five percent of funds raised on the walk will remain local and be divided between Our Sharing Pantry and the Hinckley Food Pantry. The rest will be used to help families in other parts of the world to learn better farming techniques to feed their families, to provide wells so people do not have to walk so far to get clean water and to provide food in natural disaster areas.

If you are unable to walk, another way to provide help will take place Tuesday, Oct. 8. Rosati’s Pizza in Sandwich will provide a share of their sales to the local Crop Walk. Attendees will need to turn in a form to Rosati’s. Forms are available at local churches.
