Join us for an afternoon of repackaging and sorting food at Food Lifeline. As a volunteer, you will help repack bulk donations into family size portions. Volunteers may also be asked to assist in Fresh Rescue! Your hard work will help feed people and their families throughout Western Washington.
Why you are needed: Founded in 1979, Food Lifeline, works with the food industry and its surpluses, to come up with creative solutions for stopping hunger, including redirecting good food from manufacturers, farmers, grocery stores and restaurants that might otherwise go to waste.
Food Lifeline provides 88,000 meals a day to local food assistance programs to create a sustainable approach to stopping hunger.
Age Requirement: 18+
Event Sherpa: Annie Tollefson
What to bring: A water bottle is always a good idea and you may want to bring a snack. There will be space to store your belongings
What to wear: Wear something comfortable as you will be on your feet for the shift. Close-toed shoes are required, no exceptions. Dress in layers as the warehouse is not climate controlled.
Space is limited! Once you register for the event we will hold a space just for you. If for any reason you cannot attend your scheduled shift, please make sure to cancel your registration so someone else can take your spot!
