Summer Lunch Program
During the summer, school-age children no longer receive free and reduced lunches from their schools. Many households feel more financial and emotional stress as they try to feed their children one more meal that's not in their budgets. Thanks to partnerships with area churches, Frisco Family Services is able to provide nearly 10,000 lunches and snack packs to over 300 children each day for 9 weeks at different sites. They also get to participate in physical activities, summer reading and arts and crafts. This helps ensure that our school-age children that are affected by crisis, don’t go hungry and eases the stress on the caregivers who are worried about how to feed their little ones.
