Frisco ISD Campuses Kick Off Food Drives (September, 2008)

Rogers Students Built American Flag from Collected CansEach year Frisco schools work hard to support Frisco Family Services with campus food drives. Different campuses participate in different months and because all families within Frisco Independent School District are eligible to apply for aid from FFS, even the FISD campuses in Little Elm, McKinney and Plano participate.

Rogers Elementary was one of the first campuses to kick off the food drives this year with a program called Canstruction.  The campus collected 2249 cans and 2186 pounds of food for the local food pantry, according to Assistant Principal Derek Leary.

Last year, the district as a whole collected 47,826 pounds of food. The center gives out just under 25,000 pounds a month on average. FISD’s contribution represents close to two months of operations of the pantry.

The food drives are an important part of FISD’s support of the community and also a vital part of the district’s ongoing character education curriculum, which encourages students to be compassionate and to be community volunteers.
