Pierce County, WA: Help your local food pantry feed neighbors in need!

Covid-19:

Emergency Food Network partners with over 80 food pantries, shelters, and hot meal sites in Pierce County. Many of them rely almost entirely on volunteers to keep them running. There truly are tasks for people of all abilities and preferences, including packaging food, guest intake, delivery driving, shelf stocking, data entry, hot meal service, sharing healthy recipes, picking up donations from local stores and restaurants, sorting food, and working curbside to load food into guest vehicles.


Due to Covid-19, food pantries are experiencing an increase in guest visits, with some sites seeing twice as many visits as in 2019. While many locations have support from the National Guard, this assistance will gradually be phased out towards the end of July, leaving many volunteers roles waiting to be filled. With pantries located throughout Pierce County, there is bound to be an opportunity that can work with your schedule.


We would love to help you find a food pantry to volunteer with that fits your schedule. Just let us know your preferences, and we will help put you in touch with right pantry so you can get started!
