Yellow, blue, and red image of a child's lunch trayThe Cumberland County School Nutrition Association (CCSNA) is proud to announce the success of the third annual Sunshine Bag Program.  The program provides a ‘Sunshine Bag’ containing non-perishable foods and other products to homeless and severe needs students to aid them during Spring Break since the students do not have access to the support offered at school, including school meals. The association distributed 750 ‘Sunshine Bags’ to students this year. 

“The Sunshine Bags are an effort to aid students that rely on school meals as a primary source of nourishment during Spring Break,” said Renee Autry, CCSNA President, and Terry Sanford High Cafeteria Manager. “It is our way of extending our care for the students beyond the cafeteria.”  The association, comprised of Cumberland County Schools’ cafeteria employees, conducted fundraisers, solicited community support and collected donations to help fill the bags. As students begin enjoying the benefits of their bags during Spring Break 2018, CCSNA members have already begun planning for the next Sunshine Bag Program.
