Families throughout North Texas continue to be financially impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, which also impacts their ability to purchase food. The USDA conservatively estimates that there are more than 100,000 Collin County residents who currently do not have enough to eat, including at least 40,000 Collin County children who go to bed hungry each night.
In response to this, Alliance of Elite Youth Leadership (AEYL) and Community Lifeline Center (CLC), two nonprofit organizations based in McKinney, have joined forces to launch a new program called “Feeding Friends and Families,” which was designed to distribute high-quality food to those in need, at no cost to the recipients.
Food boxes will be distributed on specified Saturdays. Each family will receive two large boxes of food per distribution, one containing perishable produce and dairy products, and the other containing shelf-stable items including fruits, vegetables, and proteins.
