Each month ECHO Food Shelf serves over two thousand area households.  ECHO provides emergency food services to families in Blue Earth County and North Mankato, distributing over one-hundred-fifty thousand pounds of food monthly.  Since 2010 ECHO has been a client choice food shelf, which means clients choose their own grocery items instead of receiving a standard food package. Donations and volunteers are in constant need for ECHO to continue providing this important community resource.  Make an online donation and find out about volunteer opportunities here.
