Morning Grocery Rescue Volunteer- University District Food Bank

The University District Food Bank is seeking volunteers to help us rescue food from local grocery stores and businesses. Volunteers will adopt a store and visit it weekly using their own vehicle to pick-up donated items from, repack the goods and deliver them to the food bank where they will be sorted and distributed to our community.

75% of the food distributed in our free store is donated from local grocers and volunteer support allows us to distribute that food as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Volunteers must have a valid drivers license, working vehicle with enough space to fit donations and be able to lift more than 50 lbs. We have smaller pick-up opportunities as well for folks with limited space or lifting capacity.

Our most needed shifts are Monday-Friday between 8am-12pm. Pick-ups can be completed in ~2 hours.

If you are interested, please email Hannah@udistrictfoodbank.org or call (206) 723-7060x706 to get started. We look forward to hearing from you!
