The Shepherd’s Market

COVID-19 Update Modified Operations

The Shepherd’s Market serves drive-thru food boxes on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8 to 10 a.m. (No Monday shift)

We are limiting volunteers to no more than eight (8) per day, so volunteers should contact Theresa Sandifer (225-337-1306 or before showing up.

We will have regular Food Bank deliveries on Fridays at 8 a.m., and volunteers will be needed for stocking.

The Shepherd’s Market is a client-choice food pantry serving the hungry and needy in south Baton Rouge.

We have been operating for more than nine years. In that time we’ve opened more than 2,700 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 tenth annual Great Turkey Giveaway was Saturday December 19, 2020. We provided more than 500 turkeys and all the trimmings for wonderful Christmas dinners.

See pictures of our amazing volunteers in action from previous years! Donations can be made through our PayPal – note Great Turkey Giveaway.
