ECHO Food Shelf

The ECHO Food Shelf's mission is to help people living in Blue Earth County and North Mankato with food assistance. Echo Food Shelf receives donations from the local community, where the food goes to less fortunate families, to help provide healthy meals for families.

Campus Kitchen at Minnesota State University, Mankato, provides ECHO Food Shelf 105 meals per week.

Blue Earth County Social Services

County Social Workers 'Journey Home Program' and Partners for Affordable Housing main focus is to help provide housing and supportive services to low-income families and individuals in the Mankato Area. Partners for Affordable Housing believes it is essential that affordable housing and temporary shelter be available to those in need. They also believe that the public interest is best served when all citizens have the opportunity to properly house themselves and their families in comfort and safety. They also believe that the cost of housing should not disproportionately deplete the already stretched finances of the poor and homeless.

Campus Kitchen provides over 50 meals per week to individuals and families residing in Mankato and North Mankato!

Theresa House and Welcome Inn

Operated through Partners for Affordable Housing, Theresa House and Welcome Inn provide emergency shelter and short term transitional housing to families and single women, as well as assistance in meeting basic needs and accessing area social services. Theresa House and Welcome Inn are an interdenominational Christian ministry, open to people of all beliefs. Campus Kitchen Mankato provides 20 meals per week in support of this initiative.

Salvation Army

The Salvation Army is an international movement, sharing in the mission of Christ for the salvation and transformation of the world. Its members are at worship and at work in over a hundred countries. Salvation Army helps people in crisis during natural disasters, helps seniors, and collects money during the Christmas holiday for the people all over the country.

Campus Kitchen Mankato supports this effort by providing food recovered from area restaurants as requested.
