Here’s How We Started…


Can one voice make a difference?  Can helping a stranger change lives?  Yes and Yes.

The Shepherds Table Soup Kitchen was born out of the selfless acts of kindness from six individuals who saw a need to help and decided to act.  Watching people beg for food and dig out of trashcans just wasn’t anything they could stand by and watch happen without trying to help their fellow man.  These six individuals went home, got a plan together and started cooking.  They made soup and sandwiches in their homes, brought them down in their cars and started handing them out.  The first day they did this they served 27 hungry and very grateful people.

Today our kitchen operates with approximately 5,000 volunteers a year, along with two full-time and two part-time employees.  We serve a free, hot and nutritious meal to over 275 men, women and children each day.  Anyone and everyone is welcome to come and dine with us, with no questions asked.
