Summer Meals

The Carroll County Housing Authority and River Bend FoodBank teamed up this summer to sponsor a Summer Meals program two days a week (Tuesday & Thursdays) at our Carroll Apartments site during the months of June, and July. These complimentary meals were made available to all local children 18 and under. Throughout the two months, over one-hundred and forty (150+) meals were served to our local youth. Following are a few pictures of the children enjoying a meal at our Carroll Apartments site:
