The Greater Allentown CROP Hunger Walk is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Oct. 14 beginning and ending at St. Timothy Lutheran Church, 140 S. Ott St., Allentown. Registration begins 1 p.m.

Twenty-five percent of funds raised by the CROP Hunger Walk returns to the Lehigh Valley to support the Allentown Area Ecumenical Food Bank and the Lehigh Conference of Churches Soup Kitchen.

The remaining 75 percent is used by Church World Service for disaster relief (e.g., for communities in the United States and around the world devastated by tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, and floods) and development assistance (e.g., assisting poor families with clean drinking water, seeds, tools, and irrigation).
