The daily meals program is at the heart of our mission, and was the very first program at Shepherd’s Table. Since the organization was founded, the program has grown to provide more than 117,000 meals every year without missing a single day.

Update: Due to the current situation of COVID-19, we have made some changes regarding our hours of daily meals program. We are now serving only Brunch and Dinner every day. The new hours are as follows:

Brunch: 10:30 AM -11:30 AM 
Dinner: 5:30 PM – 7:00 PM 

Volunteers and In-kind Donations

This program would not be possible without the assistance of thousands of volunteers that assist with meal prep, serving the food, and clean up. Special thanks to ALL our regular volunteer groups
Additionally, we are blessed to have the support of local farmer’s markets, grocery stores and other food providers that donate food items regularly.

Supporting The Program

Our daily meals program relies heavily on in-kind donations of food items. Due to COVID-19, we have made some changes to how we serve our meals, so our needs have changed as well. Please visit our blog post “Best Ways to Support Shepherd’s Table During COVID-19” to see what we are currently accepting. If you want to donate homemade items or schedule a pick-up, please coordinate with Haile Gebregziabher, our Director of Operations, at [email protected]or dial 301-585-6463 X1, to learn the dates and quantities needed.
We are also in need of non-food items for our programs. Check out our Wish List
