Food bank sorting & packaging
Northwest Harvest is the only nonprofit food bank distributor operating statewide in Washington with a network of 375 food banks, meal programs and high-need schools. Through this network, we provide nearly 2 million meals every month.
The mission of Northwest Harvest is leading the fight for hungry people statewide to have access to nutritious food while respecting their dignity and promoting good health. Our vision is ending hunger in Washington.
Volunteering at Northwest Harvest
Volunteers at Northwest Harvest sort and package bulk food into smaller portions so that food banks and their clients can use the food effectively. Volunteer shifts typically run from 12-2pm Monday-Thursday, with one 6-8pm shift per week and one Saturday shift per month. However, the schedule does vary from month to month.
Prospective volunteers can register in our system at: www.northwestharvest.org/sign-upapply-to-volunteer. Once registered, volunteers receive a monthly calendar with the open volunteer shifts for the coming month. We are very flexible and can accommodate groups that would like to come in on a certain day or time.
