Thank You for Your Interest in Volunteering with Northwest Harvest!

Our work is only possible with the support of volunteers like you. Your time is a valuable donation.

COVID-19 Response

For everyone’s safety, we have adjusted our volunteer schedules and requirements. Please visit our COVID-19 Response page for more information.

Volunteers are the heart and soul of our organization. They play a crucial role in our mission to provide access to nutritious food for all in Washington state.

Volunteers are the engine. Our volunteers donate approximately 150,000 hours per year—the rough equivalent of 50 full-time staff—and have a huge impact on all facets of our operations. Whether it’s repacking product at one of our regional distribution centers, distributing food at our SODO Community Market in Seattle, helping out a special events, or hosting food drives, our volunteers are vital to the ongoing fight against hunger.

For Individual Volunteers

We have ongoing opportunities for anyone who is nine years old and up. Please review our FAQs for information on youth volunteering.

For Group Volunteers

We work with groups of all sizes. Although the group size limit for SODO Community Market is eight volunteers, our distribution centers can accommodate much larger groups.
