Who We Are

End Child Hunger in Alabama (ECHA), an initiative of Hunger Solutions Institute of Auburn University, has developed the ECHA County Food Guides. With the assistance of volunteers and strategic community partnerships, ECHA is ensuring that families throughout the state of Alabama can find local food resources when they need them!
