Applications are currently on hold as we update our program.
Volunteers are needed all year long to help us sort and repack bulk food into family-sized portions for distribution to our partner food banks, meal programs, and high-need schools in central Washington. You can volunteer as a group or an individual with no minimum time requirement. Donations of time and effort really do add up, and it’s amazing to see how much can be accomplished in a two-hour shift. Start making a difference in your community today by filling out a volunteer application!
For more information contact our Volunteer Team at 509.598.7008.
Weekend volunteer opportunities are on hold until further notice.

Unfortunately, we do not have a handicap-accessible restroom.
