The theme, “Take the School Breakfast Challenge” encouraged students to eat breakfast Monday thru Friday of the celebrated week. On Friday, the students who ate breakfast during the week complete a raffle ticket and their names were entered into the county-wide drawing.

The awarded prizes were based on grade level.

Congratulations to our winners! The challenge continues for ALL students to eat a healthy breakfast every day in the cafeteria.

The Cumberland County School Nutrition Association is proud to announce another tremendously successful year of the Sunshine Bag Program.  Each bag contains non-perishable foods and other products we hope will aid students while they are out on Spring Break. With the assistance of approximately 50 volunteers, we were able to send 676 bags to families in need. Our efforts could not have been possible without the overwhelming kindness of our donors. We are incredibly thankful to:

Bruce Butler

Randy Pope

Dr. Lane and Associates

The Dental Care Center

CCS Social Workers/ Homeless Education

Employees and Administration of CCS Child Nutrition

On behalf of the members of the Cumberland County School Nutrition Association, we extend our most sincere thanks to all that were involved in the success of this program. We could not be more excited to collaborate with our community members and other CCS departments to bring a little sunshine to our homeless and severe need students during Spring Break. If you are interested in being involved with this worthwhile project next year, please contact Tina West, Sunshine Bag Project Manager at South View High School Cafeteria.
