Frisco Fastpacs

Dedicated to at-risk students in our community, Frisco Fastpacs ensures no child in Frisco is left hungry when school is not in session. In Frisco ISD, approximately 9,200 students qualify for the free or reduced lunch plan which means that 9,200 students are at risk of going hungry when school is not in session. Frisco Fastpacs combats this by providing weekend pacs consisting of enough non-perishable, easily prepared food to last for the seven meals between the time a child leaves school on Friday and returns the following Monday morning.
