Good Samaritan Inn

The mission of The Good Samaritan Inn is to create social and economic opportunity through nourishment, gardening, and education.

The Good Samaritan Inn has served the Decatur community for 40 years through its Noon Meal and Mercy Gardens Programs. It serves a nutritious lunch 365 days a year from 11:30a-1p and grows its own produce which it utilizes in the Noon Meal and shares with the community and partner food pantries. They appreciate support through time, talent, and treasure and are blessed by volunteers every day of the year, even on holidays. Please contact them to get involved and thank you for your support!
