Congregation Close-up: St. John the Divine, Springfield

 

The Shepherd’s Table Food Pantry, a partnership with Food for Lane County, opened in a modular unit at St. John the Divine in 2013, but suffered a plumbing accident in 2016 that forced them to operate out of the Parish Hall. Now they have built a new, permanent building with twice as much space, which was blessed and officially opened last Sunday.

Run by volunteers, The Shepherd’s table serves about 180 people each month. They are currently open on the first and third Saturday of each month from 9:00 a.m. to noon.
