Founded in 2010, The Gathering Source began with a simple mission of repaying the community for their support after the death of the President’s husband. After identifying several gaps in community services, The Gathering Source has evolved into a multipurpose organization devoted to Caring for Hunger, Education and Wellness (CHEW) to improve the quality of life in our rural communities.

We believe that the community as a whole benefits when its children and families succeed. The Gathering Source is committed to giving economically disadvantaged individuals and families the opportunity to achieve their own success by alleviating hunger and providing access to the various tools they need to succeed.

Our Vision and Mission

Our vision is a community where everyone has access to nutritious food, life skills education, organizations that provide assistance, and wellness tools for improved quality of rural life.

We are devoted to Caring for Hunger, Education and Wellness (CHEW) in our rural communities in partnership with our schools, organizations, churches, businesses, and caring individuals.

Our Values

All those walking through our doors will be served with dignity, kindness and confidentiality as we believe these are basic human rights.

Honesty and integrity will be given the highest priority when working with our community partners and donors.
