Frisco Family Services Summer Lunch Program
June 1 - July 31
Typically during this time of year, you would see groups of smiling, carefree children eating lunch, playing and socializing on school grounds during our Summer Lunch Program. But like a lot of gatherings and activities, we’re restricted in what we can do because of COVID-19 and one of our top priorities - the safety and health of our partners, volunteers, staff and the community.
While the logistics of this year's program may look different, make no mistake - we are still here, providing nutritious lunches and weekend meals to school-age children who qualify for free and reduced lunch during the school year. New to the program each week is Fresh Friday, when participants will receive fresh produce as well.
Our Summer Lunch Program began June 1st at Bright Academy with the help of about ten Stonebriar Community Church volunteers who handed out pre-packed lunches via a drive-through pickup line.
You could still see the smiling eyes of our neighbors behind the wheel as they reached out for their free lunches. All the volunteers smiled back through masked faces happy to lend a gloved hand.
With 13% of FISD students qualifying for free and reduced meals during the school year, our Summer Lunch Program helps eliminate some of the strain of providing these additional meals during summer break.
