Help ensure food security for your neighbors by volunteering with North Helpline Emergency Services and Food Bank!


North Helpline distributes food to our neighbors in North Seattle three times a week, keeping over 1,200 individuals fed. Over 120,000 pounds of food is given out monthly. Our work would not be possible without the thousands of volunteer hours served here every year.


At North Helpline there are some clients who do not have the ability or connections necessary to being present at food distribution. To counter these barriers, North Helpline provides home delivery to a group of housebound clients every other week.


We pack on Thursdays from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm with dietary needs and restrictions in mind. Due to this and the particular needs of some neighbors, attention to detail is a key attribute needed to help pack these boxes. Dietary knowledge for needs such as diabetes, gluten intolerance, and food allergies, as well as the ability to lift up to 35 pounds is also a plus.


The shift is two hours every other week.
