A SIMPLE GESTURE

“Sharing Food in Our Community”

Donating food to the Stanwood Camano Food Bank couldn’t be easier!

A simple Gesture is a program that makes it easier to donate food to the Stanwood Camano Food Bank. We provide you with a reusable green bag to fill with non-perishable food items and we’ll even remind you a few days before the scheduled pickup. You simply leave the bag of food on your front porch and a volunteer will pick it up on the second Saturday of each even numbered month and leave and empty bag 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.

REGISTRATION FORM

For Simple Gesture participants who also generously provide financial donation, please contribute those donations directly to the food bank, 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.
