Located in Central Seattle, the YWCA Central Area Food Bank distributes food to families from the community and YWCA client families. Open each Wednesday, the food bank serves over 75 families and hands out over 2,500 lbs. of food each shift. The food bank meets a vital need for many low income families that struggle to meet all of their financial obligations and provide food for their families.

For this event, volunteers will help the food bank receive, stock supplies and prepare for the arrival of the families.


  • Wednesday, there are 2 shifts available: 8:00am-12pm, 12:00pm-4pm
  • Volunteers must be 18 years of age.
  • Individuals and teams of 2 are welcome.
  • Volunteers may have to lift up to 25lbs.
  • Volunteers should dress to get dirty and be prepared to receive food donations, unload pallets, inventory items and prepare the food bank for the clients to arrive at noon.

A brief orientation about the YWCA and the food bank will be conducted at the beginning of the shift.
