Our Healthy Food Program provides nutritious, locally sourced lunches to students in grades K-9 at Cumberland Community School. For the 2018-2019 school year, CCSS will be serving lunches Mondays- Thursdays. At $3.25 for a small portion and $3.75 for a regular portion, meals are affordable and popular. Full and partial subsidies are available for families needing support.
To order for the month of June, please fill out the paper menu sent home with students or click on the buttons below to order online.
For more information on this program, or to apply for subsidy, please contact our Lunch Coordinator, Thea Cockerton, at firstname.lastname@example.org, 250-336-8511 or our Executive Director, Sue Loveless, at email@example.com.
Donations can be made on our website here or by contacting our Executive Director.
Over the 2017-2018 school year we served an astonishing 22,641 meals and 22% of these were subsidized. We introduced a monthly salad bar, continued to support local vendors and worked hard to reduce waste through reusable dishes, composting and feeding our food scraps to a family of pigs in Royston. Special thanks to our Lunch Coordinator, Thea Cockerton, for making this all happen, and to our kitchen volunteers who contributed over 200 hours this year.
