*Goodwill VISTA* Portland Public Schools Food Security
Cumberland County Food Security Council's (CCFSC) mission is to increase food access for vulnerable people in our County by working to initiate, strategize and innovate solutions to hunger. Our work serves communities, families and people working to solve their own economic challenges and working to build food security. CCFSC convenes the Portland Public Schools Food Security Task Force which is a group of stakeholders interested in supporting, bolstering, and addressing gaps in food security work happening in local schools.
