Not everyone has the luxury or convenience of shopping at a grocery store. That's why dozens of 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 also right here in the Florida panhandle. Panama City first held the event in 1987. Since its debut, organizers have been able to raise more thousands of dollars for local food banks and organizations like the Rescue Mission and Salvation Army.

The walk is symbolic of what some people in this world have to do every day just to survive. The walk began at McKenzie Park in downtown Panama City. Volunteers also collected jars of peanut butter for local food banks.
