It's Giving Season
At Gather we hope that this year you will make Hunger a priority in your giving. It is inconceivable to me that in this beautiful community, with so much to offer all who live here, that anyone would be hungry.
But they are!!
We have neighbors who struggle daily to put food on their tables and children without free or reduce lunches during the holiday breaks. Luckily, Gather has built a dynamic system for sharing community food resources which feeds these thousands of people each month.
Our model reduces food waste on multiple levels: fresh rescue from larger grocery chains, gleaning with local farms, and cooking in local kitchens to extend the life of donated fresh foods.
At Gather the logistics of food distribution requires hundreds of volunteers, over 30 local farmers, a fleet of vehicles donated by generous local corporations and a deep commitment of the staff of Gather that no one, not one of our community members should be hungry in 2018 in America. We have the resources to feed all of us and to do so in a dignified and healthy way. I am honored to be part of this team and to be part of the hunger solution locally!
We hope you will join us as we approach the end of the year in making hunger your top giving priority!
