An image of the CCS Child Nutrition logo.In the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew, many Cumberland County residents continue to deal with personal loss and challenging conditions.  To assist in the recovery process, the USDA is providing assistance to 32 North Carolina counties, including the Cumberland County Schools’ Child Nutrition Services, impacted by a Major Disaster Declaration.

The benefits include offering meals to all students of the Cumberland County Schools at no charge through November 11, 2016. During this time, each student regardless of his/her approved meal status will be allowed one breakfast and one lunch per day at no charge.  All meals will continue to meet USDA guidelines. Additional items, including milk, may be purchased at the a la carte prices.

Starting November 14, 2016, student meals will return to regular pricing.  Parents/guardians who have not done so already, may submit an application for free or reduce priced meal benefits at any time throughout the school year.  Only one application is needed per household.

Easy access to nutritious school meals will help keep students well-nourished and ready to learn as our community continues to deal with the aftermath and recovery from Hurricane Matthew.

An image of the Center for Disease Control's Response to ZIka by the Department of Health and Human Services.Your children may have heard about the Zika virus disease (Zika) outbreak and may have questions about it. Children can better cope with any disease outbreak when they know more about what is happening and that they can do something to help protect themselves, family, and friends.
It’s important that children understand anyone living in or  traveling to an area with Zika may be at risk for getting sick. People who are not living in or traveling to an area with Zika are not likely to get Zika. There are steps we can take to prevent catching and spreading Zika.
By tailoring your conversation to your child’s age, developmental stage, and concerns, you can help him or her understand and cope with the current Zika outbreak.
