A Simple Gesture

Sign up to help fight hunger in our community and we will bring a cool, green bag to your house.

Every other month, you fill the bag with non-perishables, place it outside on a pickup day, and we deliver it to the food pantry!

You fill the bag, we do the rest.

How does it work? Find out more.

A SIMPLE GESTURE – Dulles South is a bi-monthly (six times a year) food collection program that provides non-perishable food to area pantries to support our neighbors in Northern Virginia.

We do not store or distribute any food, but take it directly to the pantry on the days that the food is collected. We manage a large group of volunteer donors and volunteer drivers who make it easy for our friends and neighbors to support the neediest and hungriest in our communities.

Last donation (October 6): 12,630 Pounds
Total donations this year: 68,161 Pounds
Total donations since inception (June 2015): 184,626 Pounds
