Our Noon Meal program serves a healthy and nutritious meal every day to an average of 350 food insecure people without any cost, membership, or questions asked. Our food service runs 7 days a week from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM. We have a fully accredited, state-of-the-art kitchen that's regularly inspected and approved by the Illinois Department of Health.
The sources that contribute towards our Noon Meal program
include the Central Illinois Food Bank, local donations, some USDA supplies, and most amazingly, the gardens maintained by our dedicated volunteers and clients of The Good Samaritan Inn.
Volunteers from our community work with our staff every day to prepare and serve our noon meal. We work with over 400 volunteers each month, and they are crucial to our daily operation. We welcome help from individuals, businesses, the faith community and schools.
