A Simple Gesture Is a Simple Idea

Neighbor to Neighbor: Door-to-Door Pickup.

Donors keep a green reusable grocery bag in their homes and fill the bag with needed food items. Donors may choose to add one non-perishable food item every week to the bag or fill it in one shopping trip. It’s a program for everyone to participate in!

Every month or two, depending on which program a donor signs up for, donors place the filled bag outside their front door. Volunteer drivers will pick up the full bags of food and leave an empty bag for the next pick up. 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!
