We’re Partnering with Plano Independent School District to Feed Students During COVID-19

Over 16,000 students in PISD participate in the free and reduced meal program.

Yesterday, 700+ Families in need of a breakfast or lunch stopped by designated PISD facilities to receive a meal for the day. Due to the increased need for families affected by the economic effects of The Coronavirus, Minnie's Food Pantry has been contacted by Plano Independent School District to assist these families by supplementing the additional meals, including dinner for those in need. The boxes will be prepared by Minnie's Food Pantry and delivered to various sites throughout the district and made available for pick up. Parents with children attending PISD are encouraged to stop by and pick up the pre-packed boxes to ensure that no child goes hungry and although schools are closed, children are still receiving three healthy meals a day.
