Shepherd’s Pantry is presenting the first annual “Breakfast of Champions to End Hunger” on Friday, September 29 at the Glendora County Club. The event provides an opportunity to bring together community’s leaders, supporters, and businesses to hear more about the work Shepherd’s Pantry does and the ways all can continue to help meet the needs of those facing food insecurity and struggling to make ends meet.
Shepherd’s Pantry operates facilities in Glendora, Irwindale, and La Puente. Their clients include families struggling to put food on the table, students, senior citizens on fixed incomes, and individuals who have suffered job loss, illness, or severely reduced income. The number of clients severed has increased over the last few years and continues to rise. As of June, Shepherd’s Pantry has provided food to over 11,956 individuals and families in 2023 alone.
The cost for the breakfast is partially underwritten by the generosity of sponsors, Athens Services, Foothill Transit and Reynolds Buick. Sponsorship opportunities are still available. The public can choose to be a sponsor for this event or simply attend the event for $25 per person and bring an open heart to hear why both Assemblywoman Blanca Rubio and the Irwindale Chamber of Commerce have each named Shepherd’s Pantry their Non-Profit of the Year.
Those wishing to register for the breakfast or partner as a sponsor should go to the website at www.shepherdspantry.com. The event will begin at 7 am with breakfast served at 7:30 am and the program will begin promptly at 8 am. Valet parking will be provided.

About Shepherd’s Pantry
The Shepherd’s Pantry organization is a result of the merging of two food pantries; Cory’s Kitchen founded in 1996, and Shepherd’s Pantry, founded in 2004. Since the inception of both pantries, additional services have been added to support those individuals and families struggling to make ends meet. Some of those services include providing resource information and assistance, haircutting, clothing store, homeless food program. Today there are three pantry locations (Glendora, Irwindale, La Puente) to better expand the communities served. Shepherd’s Pantry is a dynamic faith-based organization that sees the unique value of each client, treating each person with dignity, and offering hope with a helping hand.
