Our Ministries - Advocacy


Join Old First Church, Sunday, October 15

CROP Hunger Walks are interfaith hunger education and fundraising events sponsored by Church World Service and organized by CWS local offices across the United States.

Old First Church participates in Red Bank CROP Walk, each October, supporting local food banks and programs including Lunch Break, Calico Cat, and Family Promise. 

CROP Hunger Walks help to provide food and water, as well as resources that empower people to meet their own needs. From seeds and tools, to wells and water systems, to technical training and micro-enterprise loans, the key is people working together to identify their own development priorities, their strengths and their needs something CWS has learned through some 70 years of working in partnership around the world.​​​​​​​
