It’s about gathering people around a table, feeding their bodies and spirits through compassionate service!

The food service program is at the heart of the mission of Shepherd’s Table. Through the extraordinary efforts of thousands of volunteers, dedicated staff and countless donors,  the evening meal has been served without interruption since December, 1983. That’s 30 years of feeding hungry people in our community. In November of 2008, we served our millionth meal. On Sunday December 16, 2012 we served our first brunch meal, beginning our 30th year of service. Through a special appeal in October 2012, funding for the Thierry Musel Brunch program was secured for 2013. No longer will our clients and dinner guests be hungry on the weekend days. Thanks to all of our donors and volunteers for bringing this program to life.Shepherd’s Table is mightily blessed with the support of the local Silver Spring community, folks throughout Montgomery County and the greater DC region. Strong financial support, consistent donations of in-kind gifts, amazing food recovery from local grocery stores, restaurants, bakeries and farmer’s markets along with the  fabulous service by volunteers, and a dedicated staff all combine to make the evening meal and brunch program possible.Our dinner/brunch volunteers are composed of a wide array of people among them adults, youth, young adults, court ordered folks, service learning students and teams of people  from churches and synagogues, businesses and schools, and organizations throughout the area.Throughout the year individuals, businesses, and other groups sponsor a BRIGHT MEAL! A BRIGHT MEAL allows each individual/group to decide on a menu, pay for the food and bring the volunteers to set and serve the meal. Folks do this to celebrate a birthday or anniversary or other important occasion. Businesses do it to give back and to community among co-workers. All who plan and serve a special BRIGHT MEAL are amazed at the gratitude of our dinner and brunch guests who are so thankful for a special occasion.We are so very grateful to our casserole makers who prepare tasty, nutritious casseroles, freeze them and bring to Shepherd’s Table for a dinner or brunch meal. Currently we have four groups who make casseroles on a monthly basis: Church of the Ascension, Leisure World, Christ the King Church and Forest Glen Estate Association. To find out how to be a special casserole group just give us a call!  Click here to see life-changing services.
