The Sandwich Ministry provides bag lunches – sandwich, fruit, and a snack – to the day laborers in Berkeley and Richmond every Monday.
Led by retired Good Shepherd deacon the Rev. Teddy Knight, Good Shepherd parishioners and community volunteers make and hand out approximately 80 bag lunches per week. We get the food at low- or no-cost from the Alameda County Food Bank, our own organic garden and Good Shepherd’s pantry.
If you’d like to help with this ministry, join our cheerful band of non-cooks at 9:30 a.m. on Mondays in the Parish Hall to make and distribute lunches.
