Food  Ministries


For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat . . .

Take a Sack


Each Thursday, the hustle and bustle of food distribution overpowers the quiet that generally prevails the Good News Outreach offices located at 347 Office Plaza Dr. in Tallahassee. Through the cooperative efforts of organized community volunteers, individuals who see service to the hungry as their personal ministries, and Good News Outreach employees, nearly five hundred people per month stop in and “take a sack” of groceries home with them. To fulfill this mission, Good News Outreach partners with America’s Second Harvest of the Big Bend, Farm Share, Publix, local churches, restaurants, school groups and private donors. This cooperative effort makes our food ministries feasible. Recipients must meet income eligibility guidelines.
