Carroll County Food Sunday numbers are certainly indicative of the need right here at home. Average requests per day for assistance through Aug. 31, 2018 have totaled 59.85, for a total of 11,552 requests through the same time frame. For all of 2017, CCFS distributed 8,000 pounds of food per week to about 400 families. Those figures are staggering when one realizes that Food Sunday is a tax-exempt nonprofit, run by a volunteer board, two part-time employees, and hundreds of other volunteers. Food Sunday is dependent upon support from fundraisers, like the aforementioned dinner, Holiday Hope through Carroll County Times, Runnymede Elementary School Walk; local businesses; grants; service clubs and churches; and most surely from individual donors who give non-perishable food items and money.
