A hunger walk that's part of a worldwide effort takes place in Tucson Sunday.

Participants will walk 1.5 to 2 miles to raise awareness to help end hunger in southern Arizona

Registration starts at 1:30 p.m. and the walk starts at 2 p.m. at the First Methodist Church at Park Avenue and 4th Street.

Participants can enjoy free eegee's slushes when they return from the walk.

CROP Hunger Walk participants raise money to end hunger. 75% of the proceeds from the walk go to Church World Service (CWS) work around the world to help with self-help development, refugee aid, and disaster preparedness. 25% of the walk proceeds will stay in Tucson and go to the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona, Casa Maria Soup Kitchen and Interfaith Community Services.

Last year Tucson CROP Walkers raised more than $19,000.
