Friday Lunches

People are walking around hungry in our streets.

So, Good Shepherd Church parishioners and members of our community cook a hot lunch every Friday for anyone who needs one, like the migrant worker community in our West Berkeley neighborhood. We are using food from the Alameda County Food Bank and Good Shepherd’s own pantry organic garden to feed about 50 folks each week. And that number is growing.

Interested in helping? Volunteers are always welcome, as cooks and/or shoppers.Call the church at (510) 549-1433. Preparation for the lunch begins at 9:30 a.m. in the parish hall.
