About

… It is more blessed to give than to receive

(Acts 20:35)

Our mission is to help our community become self-reliant. We address our family’s food insecurity, teach our children life skills, and help our seniors become contributing members of society.

Our Approach

Feeding our Families

We operate in the City of Long Beach, Christ the Good Shepherd Food Pantry. Depending on food availability, we feed between 6,000 and 8,000 people every month. The monetary value of food distributed exceeds $1.5 Million a year. At the food Pantry, we meet our community and determine their needs.

Teaching our Children Life Skills

We teach our children life skills. Young people are faced with challenges and life skills are the competencies they need to succeed in life.

Mentoring-Connecting The Old to The Young

Our seniors achieve a sense of purpose by mentoring the youth. By connecting the old to the young the benefits goes both ways.

Achieving Self Reliance

By putting it all together our community achieves self-reliance.
