A Simple Gesture

A Simple Gesture is a program that has launched in many communities around the country for people to support their local food pantry on an ongoing basis.

How does it work?

  1. Sign up to participate at https://bit.ly/weymouth-simple-gesture
  2. You will receive a reusable grocery bag from Weymouth Kiwanis and a list of items that the Weymouth Food Pantry needs this month.
  3. Each time you go to the grocery store, pick up one or two things off the list and add them to the bag.
  4. On the second Sunday of each month, place your bag outside on your porch. Weymouth Kiwanis members will pick it up and drop off a new bag with a list for next month.

Where can I get my bag?

  • A Kiwanis member will drop off a bag at your house within a couple days of you signing up!

Pick-up Schedule

On each day listed below, put your bag outside and we will pick it up and drop off a new bag and list for the following month. Pick-ups will generally be in the afternoon.

Please email us if you ever need to skip a pick-up or arrange an alternate pick-up/drop-off.
