A Simple Gesture Is a Simple Idea

Neighbor to Neighbor: Door-to-Door Pickup.

Donors keep a green reusable grocery bag in their kitchens, adding one non-perishable food item every week.

Every two months on a specified date, donors leave the bag outside their front door. Volunteer drivers pick up the full bag of food and leave an empty bag for use during the next two months. The collected food is delivered that same day to our food bank partners for distribution to food insecure homes.

Corporate Kindness: Engaging Businesses to Care

Employees of our corporate partners get a bag from work to take home.

On a specified Friday every other month, employees bring their filled bags to work and get a new bag. Volunteer drivers pick up the bags and deliver them directly to local food pantries.

A Simple Gesture Makes it Easy to Help

Although food drives and food initiatives are great projects, A Simple Gesture wants to reach those citizens in our town who want to make feeding the hungriest an ongoing work of charity. A Simple Gesture makes it easy, convenient and inexpensive to give food, and thus supplies a steady flow of food to our food banks and food pantry partners.

We hope you will consider signing up as a food donor, volunteer, or both!
