The Gathering is a community of guests, volunteers and staff united by a common goal: to feed the hungry in body, mind and spirit.


We provide ten to eleven free meals each week, cooked on site at four Milwaukee locations, to those who would otherwise go hungry. We also offer services associated with ending hunger and homelessness and work to educate our community on hunger issues.


In 2019, (January - September) The Gathering has served 54,691 meals to our guests through four neighborhood based sites.
