The Crop Walk

In the face of the continuing needs of hungry people around the world and on Martha’s Vineyard, Church World Services (CWS) and the MV CROP remain steadfast in their commitment to raising money in the fight against hunger through the annual hunger walk. Over the course of 33 years, the MV CROP Hunger Walks have raised $650,000+ to benefit the poor and hungry around the world and on our island. CROP is grateful for all walkers,volunteers and donors who join each year. 

Chilmark Church has been a major participant and contributor to MV CROP for many years. In 2023 the church raised over $2500 towards the island’s $30,000 goal. The 3 mile Hunger walk is held annually on the Sunday following October Columbus Day. More information about local and world hunger needs as well as walk information go to
