Pancake and Sausage Meals

Each year, the Pancake and Sausage Meals are one of the most popular events of the entire Shepherd Maple Syrup Festival. We serve approximately 10,000 guests. It is a whole family event that is open to the public as a guest or as a volunteer.
It takes about 600 volunteers of all ages to put on these meals. Volunteers help fill jobs such as pancake bakers, batter makers, sausage makers, plate filler, waitress and hostesses, and last but definitely not least, dishwashers. These volunteers have a great bonus of getting to eat FREE after their shift is completed!
Because the proceeds go back into the Shepherd community, Kathy Edwards, the chair for this event, said “we hope everyone can volunteer and enjoy the Maple Syrup Festival. What an excellent way to support your community!”
