Shepherd’s House Hits Critical Mass — Meal Help Needed

Shepherd’s House Ministries is in critical need of donated meals to provide for the dozens of homeless that come each night to their emergency shelter on Second Street. Since the extended year-round opening of shelter services in June, the Bend location is now operating seven days a week, year-round, which has caused a significant influx of regular guests accessing the shelter.  Their 70-bed facility is now filled to capacity each night, causing a greater need for volunteer dinner and breakfast service.

For anyone interested in providing a meal to those experiencing homelessness, you can visit the “Meal Train” link on their website at Or access it directly here:

Individuals, churches, community organizations, businesses, families and neighborhood groups are encouraged to participate by signing up to help serve a nutritious meal to our neighbors experiencing the hardship of homelessness. Your help in serving and spreading the word is greatly appreciated.

For more information, contact John Lodise, director of Emergency Services for Shepherd’s House, at:, or visit the Meal Train link at
