It is estimated that more than one in six North Texans are food insecure and frequently have to choose between buying food and paying for medical care each month. In an effort to help the many seniors, children and families facing these startling statistics, and in recognition of National Nutrition Month, Mustang Creek Estates of Frisco will be collecting items for the Tarrant Area Food Bank (TAFB) now through Friday, April 7. The TAFB, which services 13 North Texas counties, provides groceries and meals to vulnerable populations to ensure they have hunger relief and healthy snacks and meals to choose from.
The TAFB is currently in urgent need of the following items: canned meat (such as tuna, chicken or ham), peanut butter (no glass jars requested), boxed pastas, boxed or canned soups, canned fruit, canned vegetables, dried beans, cereal, rice, and boxed or canned juices.
Mustang Creek Estates of Frisco invites the public to drop off donations to help them work toward ending hunger and insuring proper nutrition is given to people who truly need and deserve it.
Donations can be dropped off at Mustang Creek Estates of Frisco (1200 W. Main) inside Houses E and F between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. each day.
