Our Response to COVID-19: Shepherd’s Table is honored to continue providing free meals and essential services to our community in need in these unprecedented times. For ways to support us during COVID-19, please click here.

Shepherd’s Table’s operation is dependent on in-kind donations from individuals, communities, schools, congregations, and businesses to help keep our operating costs as low as possible. Please look at the list below before planning any food drives or bringing in donations. Your generosity is greatly appreciated!

Deliveries of in-kind donations are accepted at 8106 Georgia Avenue, Silver Spring, MD 20910. Hours for donations Monday through Friday are 8:30am to 11:00am and 1:00pm to 4:30pm.  On weekends, hours are from 8:30am to 9:30am and 1:00pm to 4:30pm.
