Raleigh Youth Mission--- Shepherd's Table


The Shepherds Table Soup Kitchen is located in downtown Raleigh just one block from NC State Capitol. Church of the Good Shepherd Episcopal Church provides the space for this ministry. It was born out of the selfless acts of kindness from six individuals who saw a need to help and decided to act.  Watching people beg for food and dig out of trashcans just wasn’t anything they could stand by and watch happen without trying to help their fellow man.  These six individuals went home, got a plan together and started cooking.  They made soup and sandwiches in their homes, brought them down in their cars and started handing them out.  The first day they did this they served 27 hungry and very grateful people.

Today our kitchen operates with approximately 5,000 volunteers a year, along with two full-time and two part-time employees.  We serve a free, hot and nutritious meal to over 275 men, women and children each day.  Anyone and everyone is welcome to come and dine with us, with no questions asked. 


 Monday morning- Mason, Taylor, Preston, Greyson and Suzanne worked to feed 292 people.  We chopped tons of carrots, quartered 500 oranges, prepared 200 desserts, and then served and cleaned up all between 9 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.
