CROP walk.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — When people around the country think of Vermont, they likely think of maple syrup, hiking, fall foliage, skiing, and big red barns with cows in the nearby pasture. But maybe they should think of hundreds of neighbors coming together to raise awareness and funds to fight hunger at home and around the globe.

The 41st annual Addison County CROP Hunger Walk will take place on Sunday, Sept. 30. Registration starts at noon on the Middlebury Town Green, and the walk gets underway at 1 p.m. Middlebury College President Laurie Patton will speak.
