Welcome to A Simple Gesture

A Simple Gesture (ASG) is a nonprofit hunger relief organization that collects food from generous donors. Some are neighbors, businesses and faith communities that fill green reusable grocery bags that are then collected by volunteers and distributed to our food pantry partners. Others are food industry businesses that participate in our Food Recovery Program.

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.
