Give Back MKE: The Gathering

Here’s why you should consider donating to The Gathering as part of Give Back Milwaukee.

What We Do:

For 38 years, the mission of The Gathering has been to alleviate hunger in Milwaukee, to address root causes and problems associated with hunger and poverty, and to provide consistent quality services to our guests with respect and dignity. We provide meals for those who would go without six days a week, through four neighborhood-based locations approximately 80,000 meals are served annually. Our target population for all programming is Milwaukee’s hungry and homeless. We have no intake process – all are welcome to eat with us at no cost and without question. Demographics of those served reflect in large part the neighborhoods in which we serve.

Where Your Money Goes: 

Your donation helps fund the Breakfast Program, the only program of its kind in the area. For people who are sleeping on Milwaukee’s streets, it offers not just a hot meal but also a brief respite from the elements.

• Supports Saturday Lunch Program and Dinner to Go Project: one of the few meals served on Saturday.

• Funds the distribution of toiletries, bottled water, socks, outerwear, blankets, sleeping bags and clothing.
