Frenship ISD Tiger Bites program provides food security to students

WOLFFORTH, Texas -

Frenship Independent School District

Frenship ISD is combating food insecurity around the community through their Tiger Bites program that works to provide both federally-funded and donation-based food assistance to any child and family that may need support, no questions asked.

Tiger Bites is hosted at three different locations every weekday until August 2 (closed week of July 1-5).

11:10 - 11:40 a.m. at the FISD Soccer Complex, 702 Donald Preston Drive in Wolfforth
12:00 - 12:30 p.m. at the Hinojosa Park, 7300 22nd Street in Lubbock
12:45 - 1:15 p.m. at Duran Park, 26th and Kewanee in Lubbock

FISD teamed up with Aramark for a second year to provide an innovative solution to summer hunger across the area. In addition to providing meals to students as District campuses, meals are also provided at two City of Lubbock parks.

By going to these parks, the barriers associated with transportation and working parents have been removed, allowing children of all ages from all over nearby neighborhoods to access quality lunches.

Keith Patrick, Director of Entrepreneurship and Innovation, said Frenship is committed to working with community partners to provide food security to Frenship's continually growing population.

"With over 40 percent of Frenship ISD students qualifying for the Federal and Free Reduced Lunch Program, there is undoubtedly need present in our community," Patrick said. "We also recognize that often families may find themselves in need unexpectedly. Frenship wants to be responsive to those needs and have programs in place for any family to access when they need them."

Additionally, through a partnership between the Casey Professional Building, First Baptist Church of Lubbock, J.T. & Margaret Talkington Boys and Girls Club and Frenship Athletics, staff, students and college interns, children who visit a Tiger Bites site are surrounded by positive interaction through mentor-ship, games and more.
