Help by Volunteering
We are grateful to the local community members for helping us carry out our mission.
How to Volunteer
Typical volunteer hours at the West Seattle Food Bank are Monday to Friday, 9am to 3pm, and until 7pm on Wednesday. We DO NOT usually have weekend or evening opportunities.
All new volunteers start by attending our remote Volunteer Orientation over Zoom. To sign up for an orientation CLICK HERE
Attend our Volunteer Orientation and we will help find shifts that work for your schedule!

Court-Ordered Community Service: We are currently taking volunteers with court-ordered community service hours for non-violent offenses. Please fill out this form (also linked on the button above) and then follow our regular “How to Volunteer” procedures by signing up for the weekly online training.
Volunteering with Children: Our youngest age for volunteering at the food bank is 14 years old. The youngest age for the Clothesline is 14 years old, but must be accompanied by an adult 18 or older.
Volunteering as a Group: Safe COVID-19 procedures limit our ability to support groups but it is not impossible. Please contact Karen, our Volunteer Coordinator, at 206-932-9023 or email@example.com. We’ll work with you to see what is possible.
