A Simple Gesture is an easy way to help our neighbors have food on their table every day.

When you sign up, a "cool green bag" will be delivered to your house. An extra item or two each shopping trip is all it takes to fill up your green bag which is picked-up at your door every other month.

The most recent  A Simple Gesture donation was more than 3,200 pounds of groceries for Cornerstones' food pantry!
