Inflation Increasing Hunger Risk in Frisco

Food donations are down while requests for assistance are up

A medically necessary back surgery required her to be off work to recuperate, but healing lasted longer than expected. With the additional four weeks off work without pay, record inflation, and the increased cost of even the most basic essentials, Janet could no longer cover monthly expenses for her family.

Janet is one of many Frisco area residents who have turned to the Frisco Family Services Market to feed her family — some, for the first time. At a time when more Frisco families, including seniors on a fixed income, are turning to the Market for help, food donations are down. The Market is Frisco’s only free, community-based food source.

FeedFrisco
Currently, the Market is experiencing a more than 27% increase over last year in the number of client visits.

“Some clients have shared a fear of possibly losing their home as they make a choice between keeping food on the table or paying rent"
— Frisco Family Services Executive Director Nicole S. Bursey.

To help local Frisco families in crisis (e.g., job loss, illness, divorce) and seniors on a fixed income, we're ask the entire community to take part in FEEDFRISCO, an ongoing campaign to fill the shelves of the Market. Your food and financial donations will ensure that no one in Frisco goes hungry.

Visit FriscoFamilyServices.org/market for a list of the most urgently needed items. Donate today!
