In Crop Walk North Dakotans Take Steps to End Hunger

Bismarck - North Dakotans are joining people from across the country and walking to end hunger. 

Crop walks began in Bismarck back in the 1960's raising money and awareness for hunger around the world.

The coordinator of the walk says because hunger isn't always easy to spot people can often suffer in silence.

She says those who struggle with hunger can have a hard time reaching out but hopes coming together can shed more light on an issue that affects North Dakotans and people from across the globe. 

"For some people it's a shameful thing they don't often want to admit that they need help and we want to raise awareness that it exists here in Bismarck and we're here to help," Allison Germolus, Crop Walk coordinator says.

The crop walk raises money and gathers food donations for local food pantries and organization that help feed the hungry.

Twenty-five percent of all the money raised will go to local charities.
