2003poster.gif This year West Baltimore/Catonsville and some 2,000 cities and towns nationwide are joining together in interfaith community CROP Hunger Walks around the theme “We walk because they walk.” Many of the CROP Walkers will be wearing “We walk because they walk” T-shirts, proclaiming their solidarity with the millions of neighbors around the world who have to walk to live — as well as with the millions served by local food pantries, food banks, and meal sites here in the U.S. These local ministries share in the funds raised by CROP Hunger Walks.

Central America is one part of the world where CROP Hunger Walks are making a big difference. In Guatemala, for example, indigenous families — especially the women — are learning how to grow more and better foods for their families, using appropriate technology such as greenhouses and catchment irrigation, alongside creative solutions of their own design — used tires as mini-garden planters. They are also learning how to organize themselves, how to gain social and economic empowerment, and how to market their extra harvest.
