A Simple Gesture is a national nonprofit with a local branch in Greensboro. It is a grassroots movement to feed the neediest members of the community. Donors keep a reusable grocery bag in their kitchen and add one nonperishable food item to the bag every week. Every two months, these donors will leave their bags outside their front door. Volunteer drivers will pick up the full bags and replaced them with an empty one to be picked up on the next pick up day. The full bags will get delivered to the local food banks and food pantries like Greensboro Urban Ministry, Backpack Beginnings, Out of the Garden, and many more. Since their first pickup in June 2015, they have collected nearly 150,000 meals for families in Guilford County. As we dive deeper into this challenging year, they are expecting higher volumes of food requests than ever.
