Thank you! Our kitchen could not operate without the year-round dedication of enthusiastic volunteers. We welcome nearly 10,000 volunteers each year: dedicated individuals, corporate teams, school and church groups, high school students (13 and older) and many others from all walks of life.

Each month, almost 8,000 pounds of donated food is used to create about 250 hot meals a day, which are served free to anyone who comes to our door; no questions asked.

Most volunteers, who have had the honor of serving, work hard and, inevitably, leave the kitchen with the undeniable sense that they have personally gained more than they have given. Come see for yourself.

Working with the staff at Shepherd’s Table was amazing – they are so thoughtful and make the whole experience fun!  Without a doubt, this is one of the best opportunities in Raleigh to give a little back to the community, I’d recommend it to everyone!
