Your time is a valuable donation
We rely on our volunteers, and have opportunities available for groups and individuals year-round. Volunteers are absolutely vital to our work at Northwest Harvest. Last year our wonderful volunteers donated over 92,400 hours—the equivalent of 44 full-time employees—to ensure food reaches hungry people throughout the state.
You can help by sorting and packing food at our warehouses in Kent, Yakima and Spokane; serving clients at Cherry Street Food Bank; or assisting staff at special events. Whether it’s once a week, once a month or once in a while, your time makes a great contribution.
Descriptions of volunteer duties.
Who can volunteer?
Anyone third grade or older may work at the warehouse and the food bank. Volunteers aged 15 years old or younger must bring an adult to work alongside them. Volunteers aged 16-17 may volunteer independently with a signed parental consent form. Please print and bring signed form with you on your first day of service.
At this time, we are unable to accept court-related community service.
