Forty walkers came out to show their support and enthusiasm for the first Lusby Change the World CROP Hunger Walk held on Saturday October 14th. Walkers began their mile long walk at St. Paul United Methodist Church down H.G Truman Road but it was more about what they learned on their walk about the ravages of hunger that was message of the day.  More than $3,633 was contributed to support the hunger-fighting efforts of Church World Service, both here at home and around the world.  A portion of the funds will support the local SMILE Food Pantry and a portion of the funds will make possible the global work of Church World Service.  

The funds raised here in Lusby and in CROP Hunger Walks across the U.S. will make a difference in the lives of people around the world -- from supplying clean water to thirsty villages in Kenya, to aiding dairy farmers in Bosnia, to assisting the over 10,000 families in Calvert County that utilize local food pantries every day..

This year the Lusby community and some 2,000 cities and towns nationwide have joined together in interfaith community CROP Hunger Walks around the theme "Ending hunger one step at a time." St. Paul United Methodist Church hopes to make this an annual event.
