When you are getting your garden ready for the summer, simply plant a row of whatever you like for the Hunger and Health Coalition. Lettuce, squash, tomatoes, green beans, just about anything! If your crops are ready by June 13th or August 15th, simply place them in your ASG bag and we will deliver it to the HHC where our clients will be able to have some of your beautifully grown produce!
4. MAYBE NEXT TIME
Times are so uncertain right now. We understand if you are unable to contribute anything at this time or in the future. If you are unable to, kindly let us know and we can take you off of the database. If you are able to give in the future we can still keep you in mind.
A Simple Gesture Is a Simple Idea
Neighbor to Neighbor: Door-to-Door Pickup.
Donors keep a reusable grocery bag in their kitchens, adding one non-perishable food items 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 several food banks for distribution to the needy.
Corporate Kindness: Engaging Businesses to Care
Employees of our corporate partners get a bag from work and add one non-perishable food item every week.
On a specified Friday, every other month, employees bring their bags to work and get a new bag. Volunteer drivers pick up the bags and deliver it directly to local food pantries.
It's 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 pantries.
Working together, we can begin to make a difference to the hungry families and kids in the High Country.
