More than half of the children in our schools need a free or reduced lunch due to lack of household income.

For many of these children, school is their main source of food.

How We Help


The Gathering Source provides 155 weekend meal packs for children whose main source of food is school.  These meal packs include cereal, shelf stable milk, two simple to prepare meals, one or two nutritious snacks, and fruit.

The meal packs are assembled by Dodgeland student groups on a weekly basis to go home for the weekend. To preserve a student’s dignity and privacy, recipients of the weekend meal packs remains confidential.

How You Can Help

Because of The Gathering Source purchasing power,

a monthly donation of $50 will feed a child for a month and

provide them with school supplies for the entire school year!

The Gathering Source accepts non-perishable food donations such as:

individual servings of macaroni and cheese

small cans of ravioli and spaghetti and meatballs

cheese and cracker snacks

granola bars

Food that will make a positive impact on the nutrition needs of growing children is the goal, so please refrain from donating candy, cookies, potato chips, etc.

Donations can be dropped off directly at The Gathering Source Food Pantry at 209 S Main St, PO Box 66, Reeseville, WI 53579 or at any Dodgeland School Office.
