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. This year, our volunteers will donate more than 110,000 hours—a full 42 percent of our entire workforce—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.
