For about eighteen years, our parish community has served a hearty meatloaf dinner on the first Thursday of every month at the Wheat/United Way Cafe. The participants have come to rely on and look forward to the Good Shepherd Meatloaf Thursday! On average, we serve fifty meals a month. A revolving schedule has volunteers participating three to four times a year. We start preparing the meal by 4pm and are finished by 6pm. We have participants who bring the base of the meal, those who come to serve and interact with the clients and those who assist by preparing meatloaves in advance.
