About Carroll County Food Sunday
Carroll County Food Sunday distributes a weekly, nutritionally balanced grocery package that is predicated on household size and is meant to last 3-4 days. It includes meat, eggs, fruits, vegetables, breads and milk. Over 400 families a week are served at our Westminster, Eldersburg and Taneytown locations.
The operating budget is supported by community fund-raisers and direct mail solicitation of county residents. We are grateful for the churches, individuals, school groups and service organizations that raise donations independently on our behalf, and for the local grocers that donate baked goods. Carroll County Government provides donated warehouse space in Westminster and utilities.
More than 94 cents of every dollar donated goes to the purchase of food for needy residents of Carroll County. Food drives and food donations are also very important in helping us maintain a reliable inventory of nutritional items year round. We are constantly purchasing food from a variety of sources based on price and availability. Our Food Bank Coordinator compares bulk prices at local merchants with those available from Maryland Food Bank, a large wholesaler in the Maryland Region. When possible, we take advantage of special deals to stock up on essential food supplies that can be held in reserve until needed.
Join us at Powisset Farm while we enjoy a seasonal dinner, the scenic view of the farm at sunset, and the company of new and old farm friends. Ticket price includes full dinner, non-alcoholic beverages (beer and wine will be available for purchase), dessert, and entertainment.
Join us for a Health Potluck and a movie screening (movie TBD) beginning at 6:30 p.m.
Join us in the Kitchen for our weekly seasonal tastings sponsored by Blue Cross Blue Shield Massachusetts. We are featuring seasonal produce or products from the market. Producers, chefs and experts are on hand to inform and enlighten you about how the food is grown, processed and distributed, as well as providing tips for storage and production. This includes learning about varieties of seasonal products sold at the Market such as: apples, berries, peaches, tomatoes, edible flowers and more. In the winter season items such as bread, chocolate and cheese are sampled.
These two-hour, non-ticketed events are free and open to the general public designed for a broad audience of market patrons RSVP at www.thetrustees.org
