Westborough – The annual Westborough Crop Walk will take place Sunday, Oct. 16, at 1 p.m., beginning and ending at the Congregational Church, West Main Street. The walk will be about four miles, and registration begins at 12:30 p.m.

CROP stands for Communities Responding to Overcome Poverty and is an interfaith effort that raises money for hunger relief agencies around the globe, with 25 percent going to the local food pantry. Crop Walk takes participants through the main streets and back roads of Westborough, where water stops and snacks are provided along the route.

To participate, pick up registration materials at Westborough churches or synagogues. Or, simply show up the day of the walk with your donation.

The organizers say, “Don's just talk the talk, please walk the walk.”
