A Simple Gesture is a door-to-door food collection program that will provide a steady supply of food to the neediest families in Norwell…with your help.
Our next pickup – Saturday, July 8th
Three Simple Steps:
- Each week when you go shopping , but one extra non- perishable food item
- Store it in your cool, green bag.
- On the second Saturday of every other month, a volunteer will pick up the bag, leave another bag in its place, and take the filled bag to the Norwell Food Pantry.
It’s that simple. You buy one extra non-perishable food item; we take care of the rest.
Our next 2 pickups: July 8th, and September 9th. Here’s what the Food Pantry needs for our next pickup.

- Sort food.- When our driver volunteers bring full bags to the Food Pantry, we need to check expiration dates, sort and shelve. A couple hours on a Saturday morning on a fun helpful team,
