The Shepherd's Table, Inc. Reviews
I've been donating food and clothes to Shepherd's Table since 1997 and volunteering here since 2009. This is a one stop shop for many of the patrons. The daily meals, clothes, eye clinic, library, medical assistance, counseling, mail box for veterans and others without homes and the list goes one. I was inspired by the Late Thierry Musel (Food Services Manager) who didn't take a day off from coming here and preparing a meal. He said, "Hunger never takes a holiday." Like Thierry, most people that work and volunteer here are selfless and believe in the greater good.

Shepherd's Table has an amazing history that continues to this day. For 27 years, it has been serving a daily hot dinner: 365 days a year, through snow and power outages, never missing a single night. In addition, there is a free clothes closet; a resource desk providing medical and counseling support, including a bilingual counselor; and an eye clinic. The head of the resource room has been dedicating his life to the job for 20 years. All of the staff, along with a large core of volunteers, are committed to the mission of Shepherd's Table, ensuring that clients are treated respectfully as they are assisted with their needs.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
watching the appreciation of the clients as they thank the volunteers for serving and compliment the cook on the cooking.
