EL CAMINO HOMELESS ORGANIZATION PASO ROBLES MEAL SERVICE MOVES TO NEW LOCATION
Atascadero, CA (February 3, 2021) – El Camino Homeless Organization (ECHO) Paso Robles has moved the daily meal service provided by Paso Cares to the new ECHO facility located in the former Motel 6 at 1134 Black Oak Drive in Paso Robles. Individuals and families that are facing hunger and homelessness can now receive a to-go style meal in the newly created food service area of the Paso Robles facility. This new meal service will be managed by ECHO and will replace the meal service that was previously offered at the corner of Riverside and 24th in Paso Robles.
“The nightly dinner service is an important window of time for us - it’s where we can connect those facing hunger and homelessness with the services they may need,” states Wendy Lewis, President/CEO of ECHO, “providing meals at our facility is a natural next step in offering our services to the community of Paso Robles.”
ECHO Paso Robles has transformed a sheltered area of the new facility into a meal pick up and outdoor dining area. Individuals and families facing hunger or homelessness can receive a nutritious meal at 4:30 – 5:30 p.m. nightly. The organization has seen an average of 40 persons each evening seeking a meal and shelter since its opening in December of 2020. Full capacity is expected to reach 60 beds, and regular meal service will resume when COVID 19 restrictions are lifted and indoor gatherings are deemed safe for the general public.
Any individuals seeking shelter or assistance can attend the meal service and speak with case management about shelter services.
