Volunteers at one of our local food pantries sort food donations. Green bags are picked up the second Saturday of every other month. This helps provide a steady supply of food to help feed the hungry in the communities of Paradise and Magalia, California. There are six local pantries that participate.Read More
How can I start a program in my town?
We would be happy to provide you with a straightforward 'How to' packet so you can see if this idea is right for your community and what you would do to start this great program.
A Simple Gesture joins with Curves International
Once a year Curves International runs a promotion for new membership. In March you could join Curves in Paradise by bringing in a grocery bag of food.
A Simple Gesture joined with Curves in Paradise and included members of Curves to bring their cool green bag to Curves to get a chance to win prizes offered by Curves.
The combined promotions brought in a whopping 2800 pounds of non-perishable food which was delivered to our local food pantries.
We are so hip
Also we hope other towns will start up their own door to door food collection program. Tell your friends.
And to outdo ourselves we have pinned our cool green bag on Pinterest.com
