Our Services During COVID-19:

Shepherd’s Table is honored to continue providing free meals and other essential resources to our community during COVID-19. We are preparing for our basic services to increase in demand. However, these services come at a cost. Like many organizations, we are facing increased expenses, canceled fundraising events, and lost revenue. Therefore, we ask you – our community of supporters – to help us keep our services going for our neighbors in need. 

Please consider making a donation today by visiting our giving page, or sending in a check to Shepherd’s Table at 8106 Georgia Ave, Silver Spring, MD 20910. For other ways to support Shepherd’s Table, please visit our blog post
