WAYS YOU CAN HELP END CHILDHOOD HUNGER AND FOOD INSECURITY IN OUR COMMUNITY

WELCOME TO A SIMPLE GESTURE

A Simple Gesture (ASG) is a food-collection agency. Donors fill green reusable grocery bags that are collected by volunteers and distributed to our food pantry partners. Our program has three main goals:

  1. To provide a regular supply of food to our hungry neighbors;
  2. To create new neighborhood connections and strengthen our community
  3. To serve as a model for other communities.

The program’s founder, Jonathan Trivers, began this effort in California in 2011; there are now 65 chapters nationwide. A Simple Gesture serves Greensboro, High Point, and Guilford County and helps cities throughout the country set up their own programs. Contact us to start A Simple Gesture in your town! We are glad you are here and looking to help your neighbors.

GET INVOLVED

A Simple Gesture operates successfully with the help of hundreds of volunteers while being supported by generous donors and contributors. We also have a food recovery program, RePurpose, that gets otherwise-wasted food to hungry children. To get involved, please visit our Sign Me Up and Donate pages. There are so many ways to help end hunger and food insecurity in our community. Click on the quick links below.
