ECHOS of Compassion: Ending Childhood Hunger in Our Schools addresses children’s hunger issues by partnering with local schools to provide direct assistance to students and families. Each week, these students will receive a backpack filled with enough food for the weekend. The backpacks include two dinners, two lunches and two breakfasts. Volunteers pack the backpacks and the partner schools distribute the backpacks to the students.
Many families struggle to eat healthy meals and snacks every day. ECHOS of Compassion, a free ministry started by The Compassion Group in Pasco County, Florida, helps families eat more healthy meals and snacks through their local elementary school.
How ECHOS of Compassion Works
Each Friday afternoon elementary school children are given a backpack of healthy food and snacks. On Monday the child returns the empty backpack to their school to be restocked with food for the following Friday.
