Hunger in Frisco? Yes, hunger and food insecurity is a reality for many in Frisco and Frisco ISD, which includes Frisco and parts of Little Elm, McKinney, and Plano. In fact, more than 567,800 pounds of healthy food equaling more than 310,000 meals were distributed at no cost to neighbors in need this past year from Frisco's only community food pantry. As our community grows, so does the need for Frisco Family Services' food pantry. We are seeing more and more neighbors who, because of a crisis in their household (like illness, divorce or a job loss), need help putting food on the table so they can use their financial resources for other essentials – like rent or mortgage payments, utilities and medications.
FEED FRISCO is a great opportunity for your group, family or organization to make a difference in your community by collecting food and supplies, and raising the funds necessary to keep the food pantry stocked. Every food donation helps in the fight against hunger, when children are on break from school and eating more meals at home since they do not have access to their school’s free or reduced meal plan. All food collected during these drives will help feed those who are hungry right here in our own local communities!
