A Simple Gesture

Sharing Food In Our Community. Serving Paradise and Magalia, California

Notes on our second pick up

This nice couple signed up for the first cool green bag in Paradise/Magalia. The told some friends, who told some friends, who told….and the cool green bag story was born.

First Green baggers

Seventeen short weeks later 41 volunteer drivers picked up 802 cool green bags and delivered 12,240 pounds of non-perishable food to four local food pantries . Over 6 tons!!!!

Their shelves were close to bare and now they are full to the ceilings.

Best of all these food pantries have started to add new families who have been waiting for a helping hand and (this is as important) these local food pantries are now able to give more food to the families with children.

And we are now working with a group of caring folks in Magalia to start a supplemental food pantry in Magalia. The cool green bag program would be able to supply them with their non-perishable needs.

One can make a difference.
