We're Partnering with Independent School Districts to Feed Students During COVID-19

Over 24,000 students in Plano ISD and McKinney ISD participate in the free and reduced meal program.

Due to the increased need for families affected by the economic effects of the Coronavirus, Minnie's Food Pantry has been contacted by Plano & McKinney 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 Plano and McKinney school districts and made available for pick up. Parents with children attending Plano ISD and McKinney ISD 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.




Example of pre-packed box



Each box contains items to prepare enough meals for a family of four for about a week, including but not limited to:

  • Cans of Green Beans
  • Cans of Corn
  • Cans of Beans
  • Can of Mixed Veggies
  • Can of Meat
  • Spaghetti
  • Spaghetti Sauce
  • Peanut Butter

  • Jelly
  • Juice
  • Box of Cereal
