Frisco Family Services is in Urgent Need of Food for Frisco’s Only Food Pantry

Frisco Family Services (FFS) Food Pantry is running low on food. Currently, half of the only food pantry in Frisco is empty. Because of the 20 percent increase in food needed for the more than 3,200 clients FFS serves each year, FFS needs to collect 60,000 pounds of food this October. They are calling on individuals, families, neighbors, companies, churches and other groups to donate food to help feed their neighbors in need.

Hunger in Frisco? Hunger and food insecurity are realities for many in Frisco and Frisco ISD, which serves Frisco and parts of Little Elm, McKinney and Plano. In 2013, more than 463,000 pounds of healthy food was distributed at no cost to neighbors in need. As the Frisco community grows, so does the need for the FFS Food Pantry. FFS is seeing more and more neighbors who, because of a crisis in their household (like job loss, illness or divorce), need help putting food on their table. The FFS Food Pantry distributes more than 40,000 pounds of food each month and will see an increase in demand with the upcoming holiday season.

How to Help:

Take the list of needed items to the grocery store to help in choosing foods and items to donate to the food pantry.

Food donations may be dropped off at the Frisco Family Services Food Pantry located at 9085 Dogwood Street, Frisco, TX 75033 from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and from 9:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday.

The Food Pantry will be open for two special Saturday donations on Oct. 12 and Oct. 19 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
