No One Eats Alone Day
Feed My Sheep is a local non-profit organization set to provide a free sit down, restaurant style meal to anyone in the Tahlequah area community who wishes to enjoy a yummy full course meal out of the elements. This non-profit organization began the building process of the Feed My Sheep program in February of 2011 and opened its doors for the first time on July 14, 2011. Feed My Sheep is currently directed by Bilal Chaudhry, who also serves as the board chairman.
The food served at Feed My Sheep is provided and prepared by various volunteers, some of which have been volunteering for several years. Most of the desserts served at Feed My Sheep are homemade by regular volunteers and are thoroughly enjoyed by the consumers.
Craig Clifford has been with Feed My Sheep for the past eight years. Clifford started as a table host, then moved to dishwasher and is now currently the dining room manager. For Clifford, the greatest benefit is getting to know the many different people you encounter at Feed My Sheep. He also enjoys Birthday Day. Birthday Day is the last Thursday of the month where you get first-choice of dessert if it was your birthday that month.
Not only does Feed My Sheep provide a free meal to members of the community every Thursday, but also strives to provide other free items to those in need. For example, the opportunity to grab free books is available at each meal. This organization also holds a gently-used coat drive, where people can drop off gently-used coats and winter gear at the United Methodist Church Monday - Thursday 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. The volunteers at Feed My Sheep say people need love, no matter the different walks of life they come from.
Feed My Sheep serves their full-course meal every Thursday from 5 - 6 p.m. and is located at the Tahlequah United Methodist Church Activities Building at 301 W Delaware Street. Those who wish to volunteer are welcome to do so and are encouraged to sit down and enjoy a meal together as well.
