Shepherd's Table



RRUUC Volunteers Have Been Serving at Shepherd's Table for More Than 20 Years!

Shepherd's Table is a soup kitchen operated as a cooperative effort by a group of Montgomery County faith communities. Located in Silver Spring, Shepherd's Table has been serving dinner to about 150 hungry men, women, and children every day of the year since it opened in 1983. Counseling, medical care, showers, clothing, shelter referrals, and other assistance are also provided.

Each participating congregation takes responsibility for preparing and serving meals one day each month. RRUUC is now in its twenty-third year of staffing Shepherd's Table on the second Tuesday of the month. The team of twelve changes from month to month, giving many congregation members an opportunity to contribute their time and energy to this important activity. Each person works for about an hour and a half, with shifts starting at 5:00, 5:45, and 6:30 pm. Volunteers can come once, infrequently, or on a regular basis.

RRUUC also supports Shepherd's Table financially through the social justice pledging process and with food from the weekly food collection. Kathy and Peter Benjamin coordinate our team and they are always happy to add new volunteers to the RRUUC contingent.
