ECHO Delivers Outreach Program
ECHO recognizes that there is a segment of the population who needs extra food for their diet but cannot access the food shelf during regular operating hours because they lack transportation. For residents in this situation, ECHO will start offering delivery of food supplies to those individuals who ask for the service.
Call our client line at 507-345-7508 if you need help.
Clients receive food items that we have in abundance. This program may be used 1 time per week.
Summer Feeding Program
The Summer Feeding Program provides supplemental food for children during the summer months when school lunches are not available. Families receive food 1 time per week.
Thanksgiving Basket Distribution
ECHO offers Thanksgiving Baskets which contain a turkey or ham and other food items to complete a Thanksgiving meal. This service is offered the week before Thanksgiving.
