Early Childhood Hunger Operation's Mission

ECHO targets younger children that rely on a subsidized breakfast, lunch and snack – those that are part of the 40,000 families supported by child care subsidies in Missouri.  These young children have suffered during the economic crisis, as many day care employees already know. 

Presently, one in five children under age five live below the poverty level in Warrensburg and 5,194 households in Johnson County make $24,000 or less, with over half of those making less than $10,000 (census.gov, 2010).

We here at Central Time have spent the semester not just raising money, but helped in collecting canned and other non-perishable food items.  We also are throwing a "Battle of the Bands" to help raise money.
