GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Thousands of people laced up their sneakers and walked to end hunger in Greensboro this weekend.

The Greater Greensboro CROP Hunger Walk hosted the 36th annual walk on Sunday.

Money raised helps end hunger locally and globally. About 25-percent of the money raised will go to the Potter's House Community Kitchen at Greensboro Urban Ministry. It serves a hot meal to hundreds of people every day.

A large chunk of the money will go to Church World Service to help with its hunger-fighting development efforts around the world. Donations will go towards seeds, tools, wells and water systems.

The goal was to raise $200,000 for this year's CROP Hunger Walk. WFMY News 2's Morgan Hightower had the honor of emceeing the event.
