Summer Lunch Program
June 3, 2019 - August 2, 2019
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 our local faith-based partners, over the course of 9 weeks, nearly 10,000 lunches and weekend snack packs are provided to local children at 5 different sites while school is not in session. They also get to participate in physical activities, summer reading, arts and crafts, and social time. 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 families.
How to Help:
In addition to providing nutritious lunches during the week, Frisco Family Services Summer Lunch Program provides Weekend Snack Packs each Friday to help ensure school-age kids in their local community are not at risk of going without a meal during the weekend. A quantity of 2,000 of each of the snack items included in the Weekend Snack Packs are needed this upcoming summer.
Complete list of items needed in Weekend Snack Packs (all snacks must be pre-packaged and in individual serving sizes):
Easy Mac Cups, Ravioli, Ramen Noodles, Cereal Cups/Boxes, Cereal Bars, Pop-Tarts, Oatmeal, Muffin Bites, Fruit Snacks, Fruit Cups, Apple Sauce Cups, Pudding Cups, Jell-O Cups, Chips, Pretzels, Cheese Crackers, Cookies, Veggie Chips, Fruit Roll-Ups
