Food Bank

Founded as a nonprofit organization, the Shepherd Of Bethel's mission is to serve and follow the Lord throughout the community of Las Vegas and abroad. Any donations go directly to the purchase of food, supplies, and other necessities needed among the community.

TOGETHER WE CAN end the need for hunger in America.

From donating food, volunteering your time or taking on an fundraising challenge, there are lots of ways to get involved with raising awareness of poverty and helping end U.S hunger.

Our vision is for U.S.citizens working together to end hunger in America through the need for more food banks.

We support a nationwide network of food banks and together we provide emergency food and support to people locked in poverty, and campaign for change to end the need for food banks in the US.

In the U S, more than 41 million Americans face hunger each and every day including 1 in 8 children. If we think about hunger as most of us experience it, as a temporary sensation, the solution to this problem is straightforward: we just need to get more food to people who don't have enough. People are living in poverty – including 9 million children. According to the Census, in 2021, nearly 38 million people lived in poverty.

We know it takes more than food to end hunger. Poverty is the greatest cause of hunger around the world – in both higher-wealth and low- to middle-income class. Most people who are hungry live in extreme poverty, defined as income of $2.15 per day or less.


Schools, churches, businesses and individuals donate non-perishable, food to a food bank. Large collections often take place as part of seasonal celebrations such as Thanksgiving and Christmas, and food is also collected at supermarkets.


Volunteers sort food to check that it’s in date and store it ready to be given to people who are referred to food banks in crisis. More than 2 million people give up their time to volunteer at food banks across the US.


Food banks partner with a wide range of care professionals such as doctors, teachers, health visitors and social workers to identify people in poverty and give them access to emergency food.
