Food Pantry and Food Fairs
Food Pantry and Food Fair services are provided free of charge, to all who come to the ECHOS’ campus.
In 2020, through September, ECHOS has distributed food to more than 36,000 individuals and more than 3,000 individuals have received diapers in our drive-throughfood pantry alone. – more than 40% of them were children and youth under the age of 18 years old. The nutritious food distributed at the Food Pantry improves the health of the ECHOS families who suffer from food insecurity.
Our food pantry hours are adjusted as a result of COVID. Tuesday is a drive through distribution and starts at 7:30 AM
Our normal hours for food pantry will be announced when it is safe and no social distancing is required.
There has been a 163% increase in the number of families coming to the Food Pantry for nutritious, non-perishable food items.
In partnership with the Houston Food Bank, ECHOS provides two monthly mini health/food fairs. They are located at:
- Santa Maria Virgen Episcopal Church in Alief, – is not doing this service during COVID
- ECHOS campus, on the first Saturday of the month.- closed to COVID at this time.
45-60 pounds of fresh produce, fruits, and dairy products are distributed at the Food Fairs to the 200-275 families who attend. In 2018, 9,000 plus, individuals received food at these Saturday morning events. For more information call 713-270-0369 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
All food is provided to families at no charge. There are no restrictions or requirements.
