Summer is a challenging time for many families in our county--food insecurity is particularly prevalent, as families face increased financial strain without the support of school meal programs. The "Feeding Carroll Together" food drive aims to bridge this gap by encouraging residents to donate food items to their neighborhood food pantries throughout the month of July.
"Our community is stronger when we work together," stated Celene Steckel, Director of the Carroll County Department of Citizen Services. "By combining our efforts, we can create a safety net for those experiencing food insecurity, and offer hope as we help build their bridge to self-sufficiency."
Residents are encouraged to contribute non-perishable food items to their local food pantry. Canned vegetables, fruits, protein-rich items, and other nutritious staples are especially valuable donations. To locate your closest food pantry, we invite the public to visit http://bit.ly/ccfreefood, where you will find a comprehensive directory of the food pantries in Carroll County.
The success of the "Feeding Carroll Together" food drive relies on the support of our community. We urge residents, local businesses, and organizations to participate by donating food items, volunteering, or spreading the word about this vital initiative through social media and community networks.
