Welcome to the Good Samaritan Inn

Our Mission is to maintain a community program to serve nutritious meals to the hungry and economically disadvantaged. We serve nearly 300 people – men, women, and children – every single day. We accomplish our mission with the help of the community: volunteers who donate time, individuals and businesses who donate money, and businesses, organizations, and people who donate food and goods. Without their help, we could not help the people who need it most.

Meals are prepared and served each day by volunteer groups from churches, social organizations, businesses, and individuals who assist a small staff. Without these volunteers the Good Samaritan Inn would be unable to fulfill its mission and 300 people each day would go hungry.

Anyone who is hungry, anyone who needs a meal can come to our table. The meal is served from 11:30a.m.-1:00p.m. daily at 920 North Union Street in Decatur, Illinois, 62521.

The foundation of our mission can be found in the following verses:

"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink."   Matthew 25:35

Think About This...

For 16% of our patrons, the meal that they eat at The Good Samaritan Inn is the only meal that they eat for the day.
For another 34% of patrons, they
get this meal and one other
(only two meals a day).
