FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Over 23% of children in Texas under the age of 18 live in households that experience inconsistent access to safe and nutritious food, at some point during the year. To help ensure Irving students are equipped for success, the Irving Schools Foundation partners with community businesses and organizations to collect and distribute food to students in need. We currently average 900 food bags every week and anticipate an increase to 3,500 this year. With your help, we can eliminate hunger for the students in Irving ISD.
