Working Hard to Feed Blue Earth County and North Mankato

Stocking Shelves

The Emergency Community Help Organization (ECHO) provides emergency food assistance to people in Blue Earth County and North Mankato.

ECHO began in 1981 in a church basement and was intended for short term food assistance to people in the Mankato area. ECHO has relocated several times to larger facilities to accommodate the growing need for food assistance. Monthly, ECHO serves approximately 1,620 households and distributes 103,000 pounds of food.

In May 2010, ECHO decided become a client choice food shelf. This allows our clients to choose their own grocery items instead of receiving a standard food package.
