Friday Lunches

Good Shepherd Church parishioners and members of the community feed the hungry on our streets, particularly those of the migrant worker community in West Berkeley. A hot lunch, which is operated out of Good Shepherd’s parish hall, is offered on Friday afternoons. Serving 80-100 people each week, the meal is prepared using food from the Alameda County Food Bank and Good Shepherd’s own pantry organic garden.  Volunteers are always welcome.  If you are interested in helping, please call the church at (510) 549-1433.  Preparation for the lunch begins at 9:30 a.m. in the parish hall.
