Ada County CROP Walk

Join us for the 40th Ada County CROP Hunger Walk on October 17, 2021. Our walk will be modified again this year due to the COVID 19. We will have a virtual send-off for walkers at 3 pm, on October 17, through a zoom link. You can join a church team for a “micro walk”, or just walk with your family in your own neighborhood. We will be walking together apart. The Idaho Foodbank will receive 25% of the funds collected to increase agency partners’ capacity to help those in our communities who are food insecure. Register today for the walk!
