Shepherd's Warehouse Ministry

Shepherd’s Warehouse Ministry was established on March 5, 1989 in Tempe, Arizona as a food box ministry – assisting 35 families per year with food for the holidays. This initiative had such a great impact on the community that Shepherds was literally forced to move three times to larger facilities to accommodate their program. Now, Shepherd’s provides food boxes of up to 50 pounds to thousands of people year-round.
Waste NOT began delivering food to Shepherd’s in 1991. States Renate Blanchard, Director, "We credit Waste NOT as the very reason we were able to expand our services to the community so dramatically. To this date, whenever I need something, they make sure I get it. Without Waste NOT we would have to close our doors which would be devastating for the thousands of hungry men, women and children that we serve and have faithfully served for 27 years."
