CCSS is currently seeking individuals to serve on the Board of Directors.
Are you looking for a meaningful place to volunteer? Would you like to use your expertise to help shape the future of a charitable organization? We are looking for folks who enjoy collaborative thinking, working as part of a team and share a passion for our Mission.
Our Mission: Working together to strengthen our community by improving access to healthy food, recreation, life-long learning and a network of support. Nourish, connect, thrive!
Established in 2000, CCSS currently operates out of Cumberland School to provide a Healthy Lunch Program, After-School Activities, drop-in Youth Centre, Community Programs and the Cumberland Food Share. Although we work closely with the school, we are a separate entity from both the public school and the PAC.
