Monday Night Food Bank Cart Crew
People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.- Maya Angelou
The Issaquah Food and Clothing Bank (IFCB) serves an average of 400 families each week and would not be able to do so without the dedicated team of volunteers who come in each week to make it happen.
What: IFCB offers evening grocery hours every Monday night and needs 2-3 volunteers each Monday Night to help manage grocery carts, greet clients, guide customer traffic flow and help families load groceries into their vehicles. Since this is a client facing role, we need volunteers who are friendly, outgoing and comfortable in crowds.
A significant portion of this shift is spent outdoors and tasks are fairly phyiscal. Please plan to wear comfortable shoes and dress for the weather. Water bottles, coffee and tea will be provided to help stay hydrated. Please plan to bring rain gear on rainy days.
When: Volunteers are needed Monday Nights, 4:30 pm -7:30 pm
Where: The Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank- 179 1st Ave. SE Issaquah, WA 98027
Requirements: Volunteers must be at least 16 years old.

Q: Is there a dress code?
A: IFCB is a "jeans and a t-shirt" kind of place. Please plan to wear comfortable closed toe shoes and casual clothing that you can move in.
