Crop Walk

Not everyone has the luxury or convenience of shopping at a grocery store. That's why about 100 people took part in Saturday’s Crop Walk in downtown Panama City.

Crop Walk raises money and holds food drives to feed people globally and right here in the Florida Panhandle.

Panama City first held the event in 1987. Since its debut, organizers have been able to raise more than $100,000 locally.

The walk is symbolic of what some people in this world have to do every day just to survive.

Terry Dye, the Crop Walk coordinator, says, "There are people in this world that walk 5 to 10k every day for a clean bucket of water. Just drinking water. That's by the millions of people all over the world; Asia, Africa, South America, Latin America, and probably in our own country."

Volunteers also collected more than 800jars of peanut butter for local food banks.
