For 200 years, Gather has been serving Seacoast residents facing hunger. The agency was founded in 1816 by a small group of women committed to feeding the families of fishermen. Today, Gather is committed to ending local hunger through collaboration and leadership.

Gather serves those in our community experiencing hunger by providing nutritious food through innovative distribution programs and our Pantry Market. We offer nutrition education and recipes for healthy living. We collaborate with community partners to address the root causes of hunger throughout the Seacoast in NH and ME.

Gather's focus on streamlined internal systems, processes and controls ensures that every dollar donated has a big impact on hunger. 90¢ of every dollar donated to Gather goes directly toward local hunger relief.

To make the Greater Seacoast a hunger-free community. 

To do this we: 

  • Distribute nourishing food to people who do not have enough to eat; 
  • Take a leadership role in building an equitable and sustainable regional food system; and, 
  • Galvanize public support for ending hunger
