Community Lunch Program
We are inviting you to join us in spreading hope, joy and love to those experiencing homelessness here in our community. It's as simple as making lunches at home and dropping them off at Shepherd OR you can join a team of volunteers who will hand-deliver lunches to those in need. Here's how you can participate.
We ask that each lunch bag must have the type of sandwich clearly written on the outside of the bag. Here are some suggested items for each lunch:
- 1 Sandwich (PB&J, Turkey, Tuna, Ham & Cheese, etc.)
- 1 Piece of Fruit
- 1 Snack (chips, granola bar, etc.)
- 1 Beverage
- 1 Cookie or Dessert
- 1 Napkin or Paper Towel
Also, we want to remind everyone to decorate the bags and include a note of love, hope, joy, etc...
Lunch Drop Off Time
10:30 am - 11:30 am
Do you have a heart to serve and engage with those experiencing homelessness? We are looking for volunteers with humble and teachable hearts who are eager to love and build relationships.
On the second Saturday of every month, we will gather on the North Patio of the Ministry Center to pray and prepare for outreach. From Shepherd, we will carpool in groups to various locations in the area to distribute lunches and spend time serving and getting to know those in the homeless community.
We are going out in efforts to share God’s love by building relationships, meeting an immediate need and pointing people to resources on local housing options.
