“Sharing Food in Our Community”

Donating food to the Stanwood Camano Food Bank couldn’t be easier – Let us do all the work!

A simple Gesture is a program that makes it easy to donate food to the Stanwood Camano Food Bank. After you register we provide you with a reusable green bag. Every time you go to the store pick up a few items to fill your bag with non-perishable food or personal care items. The bags have a list of our most needed items, as well as the dates we pick up. We will even send you email and text reminders a few days before the scheduled pickup. You simply leave the full bag of food on your front porch. A volunteer will pick it up on the second Saturday of each even numbered month and leave and empty bag in its place for you to fill for the next pickup. It really is that simple! This service is now offered on Camano Island (zip code 98282) and Stanwood (zip code 98292).

If only 10% of local residents donate an extra non-perishable food item through A Simple Gesture each time they shop for groceries, that effort has the potential to provide 150,000 to 200,000 pounds of food to our neighbors each year. This will allow the food bank to use precious monetary donations to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables, meat and dairy products.

Are you outgoing and have a gift for gab? We are searching for advocates to help educate our community about this amazing program! If you are interested please contact Kathy Moe at director@scfbs.org or call her at (360)629-2789.

For Simple Gesture participants who also generously provide financial donation, please contribute those donations directly to the food bank or by clicking on donate now, rather than placing money or checks in the green bags. If by check, please write "ASG" on the FOR line. If by Paypal, then please add "ASG" as a note.

A Simple Gesture is an all-volunteer effort that is active in 30 communities across the country, including several in Western Washington.
