Hunger in Frisco? Yes, hunger and food insecurity is a reality for many in Frisco and Frisco ISD, which serves Frisco and parts of Little Elm, McKinney, and Plano. In fact, more than 572,000 pounds of healthy food equaling more than 446,000 meals was given at no cost to neighbors in need last year. And the need is growing. As our community grows, so does the need for the FFS Food Pantry. This year the FFS Food Pantry saw a 23.5% increase in use. 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 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 keeping the only food pantry in Frisco 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 to feed those who are hungry right here in our area!

Here's How You Can Help!
 
1. Set up a donation drive for food/supplies or collect funds. This can be done with your Company, HOA, Church, Civic Group, etc... This Tool Kit has valuable information about organizing and running a successful food drive.
