ECHO, Inc. takes the health and welfare of our clients, staff, volunteers, and partner agencies very seriously. We are taking steps to address and mitigate the spread of COVID-19, based on the local, state and federal guidance available. We are moving forward in a cautious but calm manner and all locations and programs are currently business as usual with a few modifications at our Farmington Foodbank and Albuquerque Foods for Seniors Program.

Donations: Gently Used Plastic Bags (No Holes); Food Items: Water, Peanut Butter, canned Fruit, canned Tuna & Chicken and any non-perishable, household size food items. A full list of donation items can be located on our Facebook page and website. We are also accepting online donations at: www.echoinc.org/getinvolved/donate. Donations can be dropped off at the Farmington Food Bank at 401 E. Commercial and the Administrative Office at 1921 E. Murray Drive.

Volunteers: We are in desperate need of volunteers to help organize and pack food. If you are interested in volunteering, please call Farmington Food bank at 505-326-3770 or the Albuquerque warehouse at 505-242-6777. As part of the volunteer application, all applicants will complete a COVID-19 screening form.

Farmington Food Bank: With the exception of the food bank distribution process, we are business as usual. We will be implementing a drive-in pick up for food boxes beginning Wednesday, March 18, 2020. Food boxes will be issued on the west side of the building. This is key for social distancing to eliminate as much exposure as possible. For questions, please call the warehouse at 505-326-3770.



Aztec Preschool: At this time, we are business as usual. We will rely on local, state and federal guidance to determine if the Aztec Preschool will close or work with a lighter staff schedule. We will continue to enforce normal regulation cleaning and safety precautions. We do have slots available. Please call the preschool at 505-334-6135 for more information.

Albuquerque Foods for Seniors Program: With the exception of the food bank distribution process, we are business as usual.
