The goal of ECHO is to end hunger in Eastern Hillsborough County.
Immediate hunger is addressed through a fully stocked food pantry. Each individual served through the pantry receives at least 20 pounds of food, consisting of fresh meat, produce, cheese, eggs, margarine, and canned goods. Families in crisis are also given full access to the 2000 square foot clothing room. Each family member is encouraged to take up to 12 outfits each.
Long term hunger is alleviated through stability programming such as: a vibrant job skills training program, GED instruction, and financial literacy resources.
