CCSNA members pack Sunshine Bags for Local StudentsThe Cumberland County School Nutrition Association (CCSNA) is proud to announce the success of its 2nd Annual Sunshine Bag Program. The program provides a ‘sunshine bag,’ which contains non-perishable foods and other products, to students in transition and/or need. The Bags help provide nourishment during Spring Break since the students do not have access to the support offered at school which includes school meals.  The Association distributed nearly 700 ‘Sunshine Bags’ to students this year. “We see students come through the cafeteria lines that rely on school meals as their primary source of nourishment,” said CCSNA President and South View High School Cafeteria Manager Tina West.  “Our goal is to provide them with some resources during the Break.  It is our way of extending our care to the students beyond the cafeteria.” CCSNA, made up of CCS’ cafeteria employees, conducted fundraisers, solicited community support, and collected donations to help fill the bags.   As students enjoyed the benefits of their bags during Spring Break 2017, CCSNA members have already begun planning for the 2018 Sunshine Bag Program.
