NORMAN — The annual Cleveland County CROP Walk to Stop Hunger starts with registration at 1:30 p.m. Sunday at Food and Shelter Inc., 104 W Comanche St. The walk starts at 2 p.m.
The three-mile, 45-minute walk-a-thon brings together faith groups, businesses, organizations and individuals in an awareness campaign to fight hunger and poverty locally and around the world.
A children's chalk art contest was held Saturday at the Santa Fe Depot as a precursor to the walk.
“Helping the Hungry — Making a Difference” was the theme of the art contest, which was designed to raise children's awareness of hunger and poverty “and teach children to use art and creativity to bring positive change to their world,” said Ed Kearnes, event director.
Children participating in the contest brought donations of cans of tuna and jars of peanut butter as their entry fee.
CROP, which stands for Communities Responding to Overcome Poverty, is a nationwide effort to raise awareness about the impact of hunger and poverty. The walk is one of more than 2,000 such events taking place across the country.
While there is not a registration fee for Sunday's walk, participants are encouraged to make a donation.
