“Our goal is just to provide food or groceries to families that are dealing with food insecurity that are not able to put enough food on the table for themselves or their families,” ECHO Food Shelf Manager Deisy De Leon Esqueda said.

The ECHO Food Shelf is hoping the community will show their support in the parade and is accepting donations of all kinds Saturday.
