Welcome to A Simple Gesture

A Simple Gesture (ASG) is a food collection agency in which donors fill green reusable grocery bags that are collected by volunteers and distributed to our food pantry partners.

Our program has 3 main goals:

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

The program’s founder, Jonathan Trivers, began this effort in California; there are now 65 chapters nationwide. A Simple Gesture serving Greensboro, High Point and Guilford County now 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.
