Thanksgiving Campaign

This holiday, let us eat together, give together, and serve together.

Bhagwan Gupta has been volunteering with Shepherds of Good Hope for 26 years. See his story below and why he supports Shepherds of Good Hope.



I believe food nourishes the soul.

In my culture, we practice langar, where free meals are served in community kitchens all day, every day. All are welcome, and sit side-by-side with others, sharing the same meal. The beauty of it is that it doesn’t matter who you are or where you come from – you could be sitting beside a CEO or a nurse, or someone who’s homeless – everyone is equal.

Thanks to you and others like you, for the last 26 years I’ve been able to serve food in Shepherds of Good Hope’s soup kitchen to those in need, without judgement. It is about eating together, serving together and giving together.

You are the reason we can provide such compassionate service to Ottawa’s homeless and most vulnerable.

Will you help us serve love and kindness to people who need it the most this Thanksgiving? With you by our side, we can feed people and provide them with the affection and community they need. That warm meal you serve to someone who is struggling with homelessness or fleeing from violence could be their miracle meal. Please donate today:

One simple meal could turn someone’s life around. I’ve seen it. And you could be part of it.

This holiday can be such a lonely time for people who have lost touch with their loved ones. Will you be the family they need this Thanksgiving?

With love and affection,
