YOUR HELP AND SUPPORT IS TRULY APPRECIATED!
A client writes a thank you letter from the heart.
FEBRUARY IS HEART HEALTH MONTH
Are you part of the 20-30% of Americans who regularly skip breakfast? Running out the door without a bite to eat may seem like an easy way to save a few minutes in the morning, but it could actually be affecting your health more than you know.

Eating a healthy breakfast every day reduces your risk of type 2 diabetes by 21% and heart disease by 27%.

Keep your heart healthy and start your day off right with a nutritional breakfast!

OUR FOOD PANTRY PROVIDES RED BAGS FULL OF HEART
During the month of February, Frisco's only community Food Pantry provides each household with special red grocery bags filled with everything needed to prepare that week's featured meal.

The red bags also contain facts and recipe cards to help further educate and promote healthier meal options.

"The goal is to educate, support and supply the items needed to support each and every person to live a heart healthy lifestyle," said Keri Keck, Client Services Director. "One of the great things about our Food Pantry is that we offer a variety of different nutritious food options. Providing the red bags is just another way we can help our clients better plan for success."
