*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 together to initiate, strategize and innovate solutions to hunger by sharing information and resources, and taking collective action. Our work serves communities, families and people working to solve their own economic challenges and working to build food security. Our work is focused in Cumberland County, and we work with partners throughout the state, region and U.S. 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. ccfoodsecurity.org

Member Duties : The overall goal of the Food Fuels Learning initiative is to increase food security for Portland students and families. More than half of Portland students live, from a family of four, on less than $32,000 annually. Therefore, it is critical to coordinate food programs to maximize efficiency and access all nutrition resources available to our community. Many of the school food programs operate in isolation unaware of best practices and opportunities to serve more students. The AmeriCorps VISTA member will develop digital and physical infrastructure to allow more students to take advantage of summer and school year food programs. Other responsibilities include strengthening the volunteer infrastructure for CCFSC and supporting our efforts to build food security in public schools by representing the CCFSC in local committees to develop and expand food security programming and awareness in the community.
