INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Hundreds of people took part this afternoon in the 35th Greater Indianapolis CROP Hunger Walk.

Their main goal was to raise $100,000 to help end world hunger.

Reverend Brooks Barrick organized the walk. He told us his congregation at Olive Branch Christian Church serves about 250 families a month and says there’s such a great need locally for more help.

“Awareness about these issues is really important, not only giving of your time, spending time on this beautiful fall day walking, but also having yourself educated and having awareness of what this cause is in our world,” said Barrick.

Anyone can help by donating non-perishable food items at local food pantries or food banks or make a donation online.

Money raised at Sunday’s walk will be donated to local and global missions to help end hunger. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
