Major League Soccer's FC Dallas and Toyota recently delivered meals to volunteers working at Frisco FastPacs, a Texas organization that ensures students in the Frisco Independent School District (FISD) get meals they need while schools are closed because of the COVID-19 crisis.
The meals were intended for upcoming FC Dallas games at Toyota Stadium and were prepared and packaged by Legends Hospitality chefs.
“We’re proud to work with Legends Hospitality and the food and beverage team at Toyota Stadium to provide these meals to the volunteers who are tirelessly working to ensure that FISD students do not go hungry during this unprecedented time,” FC Dallas Foundation Manager Brooke Leverette said in a news release from The Friedkin Group, a group of automotive, hospitality, golf, entertainment, and adventure companies, including Gulf States Toyota.
Frisco FastPacs delivers weekend meals to all 72 campuses in the Frisco Independent School District. That means that more than 1,000 children get food when school is not in session.
FISD was forced to extend spring break until March 20 when the coronavirus pandemic hit. Because of this, Frisco FastPacs is working with the district and LovePacs Frisco to make sure that students in need still get fed.
