Partner with us in our mission to care for Earth and to feed the hungry.

With the support of folks like you, Shepherd’s Corner has been able to help combat food insecurity by donating over 42,995 pounds over the last 15 years. Proceeds will benefit Shepherd’s Corner Ecology Center’s environmental education programs, land and water conservation projects, and our efforts to provide fresh, naturally grown produce to those in need. For the third year we are partnering with nearby From Scratch Farm to continue donation of fresh, naturally grown produce to those in need. With the support of folks like you, Shepherd’s Corner has continued to care for Earth through our educational programs. Proceeds from this fun run/walk will help us continue these important efforts. A 2023 project of Shepherd’s Corner is the creation of a wetland area that will be visible from the racecourse.

We are asking 5K participants to bring shelf stable food items to add to our food pantry donation box!
