Serving the residents of Hackberry, Lakewood Village, Oak Point, Cross Roads and Little Elm
The Little Elm Area Food Bank was recognized by the Little Elm Chamber of Commerce as Community Partner of the Year (2019).
Who we serve:
Children- Through no fault of their own, 35% of our clients are children.
Seniors- Most of our seniors often have to choose between food and medical care being on a limited income. With nearly a third of our clients being seniors, we work to ensure that our elderly clients are fed.
Working Poor- Many working adults struggle with covering expenses until their next paycheck. Of the households we serve, 46% have at least 1 working adult.
Single Parents- Single parents often find that the ability to provide nutritious food loses priority to other expenses such as rent, transportation, utilities, and daycare.
Veterans- The hidden face of hunger often includes those who have served in the U.S. Military. Of those served by the food bank, 1 in 5 households includes a family member who is a former military member.
Last year with the assistance of our donors and volunteers we were able to provide:
Over 279,000 meals
Covered 100% of the expenses for Meals on Wheels within Little Elm.
Provided an additional 11,000 meals for the Summer Kid’s Eat Free Lunch Program
Our volunteers saved us $163,080 worth of labor.
