In January of 2023, ECHO experienced a deficit of 6,000 pounds between food received and food given to clients. Generous donations of staples from BPC members totaled almost 300 pounds in the last two weeks. In addition to those basic needs, please consider adding some of the following items (from ECHO’s “most needed” list) that in are low supply: spaghetti sauce, honey, condiments, onion and garlic powder, salt, lemon juice, evaporated and condensed milk, and juice. Please place your gifts in the mission center cabinet across from the kitchen; we will deliver them early each week.
