Providing Meals and Hope

By Jilna Kothary | Director of Development and Communications



2020 was a challenging year, but we also saw the community come together to help each other like never before. Covid-19 dealt a devastating blow to our clients, many of whom experienced loss of jobs, housing, family members and loved ones. The community rallied around everyone struggling to get by, and we were honored to be trusted by you to provide essential services and meals for our neighbors in need.

We supported hundreds of clients such as Deborah, who lost her job and home, and appreciates Shepherd's Table because there are meals for the homeless.

"And you don't even have to be homeless to receive help here," she said.

We supported Sean, who is experiencing unemployment, and finds comfort in accessing meals at Shepherd's Table. 

I’m going through a lot but at least I know food is something that I don’t have to worry about because of this place.” 

We kept our Resource Center open, reopened the Eye Clinic once we had the safety precautions in place, and launched a new program, Beyond the Table. We increased our impact in our community and served hundreds of new clients- families and children in need of prepared meals, adults in need of meals and assistance, and seniors struggling to access meals.

Your support, as a donor, volunteer, and advocate, made it all possible. Your ongoing support makes all the difference for those we are serving, and will continue to serve. Working together, we can do the impossible and make sure no one in our community spends a day hungry and hopeless. 

We hope you stay healthy, safe and warm in the coming months.
