CROP walks are a Community Hunger Appeal of Church World Services, which not only provides emergency relief, but also self-help and development types of services. There are 34 denominations that participate in this effort.
Locally, Life (Lehighton Interfaith Fellowship) is coordinating the walk. Twenty-five percent of the funds raised are donated to the Trinity Pantry. The Trinity Pantry received $ 1,037.57 from the Crop Walk held in 2011.
The Trinity Pantry serves families living in the Lehighton Area School District and is a satellite of Shepherd House Inc., Carbon County's Food Distribution System.
