The Good Samaritan Ministries food pantry provides emergency food assistance for families, individuals, and elderly.
Our food pantry is the largest in East Tennessee. We see an increasing need for food every day. Last year, we made over 7,200 food boxes not including our Summer Meals, Thanksgiving, and Christmas food box program. This means that many families and individuals are struggling to put meet their most basic needs.
There are many ways to help keep our food pantry stocked. You/your church/or business can host a food drive.
If you would like to host a food drive for Good Samaritan Ministries please contact us at 423-928-1958.
You can donate perishable and non-perishable food items. You can bring your food items to the front office. We have freezers and refrigerator to keep poultry and other perishable items.
Or you can make a donation on our website and designate that donate towards our food pantry.
