Community volunteers are the heart of the Sequim Food Bank!
Our volunteer crew numbers more than fifty adults and teenagers. Together this team accomplishes the work of more than four full-time employees, helping to ensure that our financial resources remain focused on our core mission of providing food to the hungry.
A rotating crew of about a dozen volunteers ensures smooth distribution of food when we are open for service. These volunteer opportunities are great for those who enjoy interacting with others and who wish to serve on a team. Each shift lasts three hours and requires at least some physical exertion.
We also engage volunteers in a variety of independent projects ranging from counting inventory, to maintaining the yard and garden, to helping with special events. These types of volunteer opportunities are best for those who have specialized skills and/or who prefer to work independently.
Saturday distribution shifts are staffed by teen volunteers (with adult supervision). We provide a great place for students to perform their community service hours!
