Sign up to get a free, reusable green bag. We will happily deliver the bag to your home. On each bag is a list of food items local food banks need the most as well as the pick up schedule.

Do your family grocery shopping as usual – every time you shop simply buy 1 or 2 extra items to donate or fill the bag in one trip.  We have a list of most needed items from our food pantry partner. Click the button below to see the items our partners need the most. Pro Tips: Take advantage of buy-one-get-one-free offers or buy one item in bulk quantity.

On the designated Saturday of the month, one of our dedicated volunteer drivers comes to your house, picks up your bag for you and leaves an empty green bag in its place. Your full bag of food is then delivered on the same day directly to a food pantry partner in Greensboro or High Point. You have just helped a neighbor! It is that simple!

If you are already contributing food to our food banks/food pantries, thank you for your generosity. A Simple Gesture is not intended to replace your giving, but to make it easier and more convenient for more people to give.

Volunteer Drivers make A Simple Gesture possible. Drivers are asked to pick up about 20 bags in or near their neighborhood every other month and deliver the food to an assigned food pantry.

One person at your office is the Simple Gesture Champion. He or she educates co-workers about A Simple Gesture, distributes bags, and reminds everyone to bring their bag back on the designated day.

A Simple Gesture owes its growth to our wonderful faith partners.   All we ask faith communities to do is tell your congregations about us, and have them sign up!  We provide all the tools you need for bulletins, newsletters, and social media! It’s that easy!

Show Guilford County that your business cares. Whether you have three employees or 3,000 our Corporate Kindness Program can help employees give back to their communities. A Simple Gesture makes it easy.

Want to get your school involved?  All we ask schools to do is tell your teachers, students, and families about us, and have them sign up!
