Subaru of Plano presented an annual check with Mayor Harry for Food 4 Kids Plano program. An unprecedented number of underserved youth in Plano are being provided backpacks of food every weekend during the school year as a result of the outpouring from the community at large. We are extremely honored to be a part of such a great program and would like to thank all involved for helping to provide needed services in our great community!
It may come as a surprise, but hunger is a reality for a number of families in Plano
- 1 out of 5 children in Collin County are considered food insecure. That’s over 44,000, or 20% of children who might struggle to find their next meal.
- Over 7,000, 29% of kids in 50 PISD early childhood and elementary schools are eligible for free and reduced lunch.
Plano Mayor Harry LaRosiliere is committed to addressing the issue of food insecurity of chronically hungry early childhood and elementary school children in Plano by partnering with NTFB to provide them with a backpack filled with nutritious, kid-friendly, shelf stable food, every Friday during the school year. Each backpack contains at least 60% of a child’s nutritional needs for the weekend.
Through the Food 4 Kids – Plano (F4K – Plano) project, Mayor LaRosiliere and NTFB are motivating Plano’s corporations, individuals and families, faith and community organizations to raise the funds and hands to feed hungry children in their community.
