The Hunger Project: At least 1 in 5 North Texas children are labeled “food insecure,” not have enough food to eat.  Led by partner organizations across North Texas, summer programs provide meals to children who would otherwise not have one.  In the past two years, requests for food assistance have more than doubled in some areas of our community.  We can help by dropping off non-perishable food supplies (bags, cans, and boxes) in the collection bins located in front of the Prestonwood Missions building located at the back of the Plano Campus church parking lot.
