The Good Shepherd Food Bank has been open for over 30 years. It is an emergency Food Bank that is open to the public on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of every month from 10:00 am to noon.
Food boxes are given to clients who are residents of Orange County and who earn less than $271.00 a week. The Food Bank hands out between 50 and 100 boxes a week.
Volunteers from the Good Shepherd Food Bank pick up food supplies at Second Harvest every Tuesday morning at 8:00 a.m. Approximately $100.00 is spent every week on whatever food supplies are available that week.
The Food Bank also provides some personal and hygiene items to our clients.
Celandine Life Preparatory Academy, a Christian school for special needs children, is currently renting space on our campus. However, the relationship between the school and the church is not merely one of landlord and tenant. We love the presence of these children and their teachers on our campus and the blessing of sharing a bible story with them once a week. They also help with the maintenance of the community gardens where fresh vegetables are grown for our Food Bank patrons
