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.


Three Simple Steps:

  1. Each week when you go shopping , but one extra non- perishable food itemIMG_6775
  2. Store it in your cool, green bag.
  3. 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:September 9 and November 19th

There are three ways to help:

  • IMG_7708Share food:  Ask for a cool, green bag. We estimate that for every 300 people who participate, we will collect one additional ton of food a month. And it all starts with you.
  • Drive – to pickup bags in your neighborhood. Once every two months, on a Saturday, help pick up the green bags and bring to the food pantry.
  • 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,
