“If it were not for the people who started the Cumberland Community Schools Society, and now the Food Share program, I do not know how I would have survived. Bless their hearts, for they are a group that goes above and beyond.” – Community Member

Help Us Fight Food Insecurity in Cumberland

CCSS Food Programs play a crucial role in ensuring all Cumberland residents have access to nutritious food. Our Healthy Food Program produces 5,386 meals per month and 22% of these are provided free of charge to low income families. The Food Share serves as Cumberland’s food bank, providing regular deliveries of Healthy Food Hampers to 75 households, including families, adults and seniors. Help us to fight food insecurity in Cumberland by making a one time contribution or becoming a monthly donor.


Our programs would not be possible without the support of our donors, funders, sponsors & community partners.  Check out all the generous folks who contribute on both our supporters page and Thunderballs event page!
