Grocery Bag Sundays
The Grocery Bag Sunday program is a cooperative effort between ECCO and local churches. Each participating church is provided with empty grocery bags with an attached “wish list” of items that are critically low on the ECCO food bank shelves. Members of these churches take an empty bag and return the following Sunday with their donations. These bags are then collected by ECCO and put directly into the food bank. These donations are critical to helping to maintain a steady flow of food. ECCO would like to thank the churches in our area who participate in this program.
