The Shepherd’s Market is a client-choice food pantry serving the hungry and needy in south Baton Rouge.
The pantry will be closed Friday December 22 and will re-open Thursday January 4.
The pantry is open every Monday from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. and every Tuesday and Thursday from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. Doors to the pantry open one hour prior to each shift.
We have been operating for five years. In that time we’ve opened 2,719 unduplicated files, each representing a different family. We serve 380 families per month and distribute 23,000 pounds of food per month.
The Shepherd’s Market serves 35 families per day, or 400 families per month. Our focus area includes zip codes 70808, 70809, 70810 and 70820, but we serve any family in need.
Our seventh annual Great Turkey Giveaway was Saturday December 16, 2017, and was a huge success. We donated 450 turkeys and all the trimmings for wonderful Christmas dinners. See pictures of our amazing volunteers in action! Thank you to everyone who served.
