This past weekend the Catholic Charities Mobile Food Pantry in the St. Francis of Assisi parking lot was able to provide meals to 214 families. The food was provided by Catholic Charities Dallas and the North Texas Food Bank.
There were 12 volunteers that were handing out food to the countless cars that arrived on Saturday. Father Rudy and Deacon Alex were also on-site supporting the mission. The volunteers bagged and boxed 3,500 pounds of food, which included food items such as apples, potatoes, grains, juice, and chicken.
The Mobile Food Pantry has been serving the Frisco community for several months now. But now more than ever more families are arriving for support during this COVID pandemic.
We are grateful for our St. Francis of Assisi parishioner James Bailey, along with his family who have supported many of these efforts at St. Francis.
The next Mobile Food Pantry will be on April 11, from 1:00 pm until 2:30 pm or until the food has all been distributed. The location will be in the West Parking Lot of St. Francis.
Due to COVID-19 they are not accepting new volunteers at this time, however, if you would like to support the mobile food pantry you can make a gift to Catholic Charities.
