Help ensure food security for your neighbors by volunteering with North Helpline Emergency Services and Food Bank in Lake City!
Some neighbors do not have the ability or connections necessary to shop for themselves at our weekly food distributions. To counter these barriers, North Helpline provides home delivery to homebound individuals every other week on Tuesday and Thursday.
We pack on Tuesday from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm and Thursday from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm with dietary needs and restrictions in mind. Because of this and the particular needs of some neighbors, attention to detail is a key attribute needed to help pack these boxes. Dietary knowledge for needs such as diabetes, gluten intolerance, and food allergies, as well as the ability to lift up to 35 pounds is also a plus.
Interested in working with us? Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at (206) 367-3477 for more information. We hope to hear from you soon!
We believe that all deserve adequate food, housing, and respect. We assist our neighbors in obtaining basic needs that affirm their human dignity and worth.
North Helpline is a non-profit organization that was formed in 1989 by concerned citizens, business leaders, service organizations, and local church members who saw their neighbors experiencing difficult times. Recognized by such organizations as the United Way, the Seattle Foundation, the City of Seattle, and the Greater Seattle Council of Churches. North Helpline provides a variety of emergency services to local residents; including a food bank, financial aid to prevent evictions and utility shut-offs, hygiene supplies, diapers and baby food; and referrals to other agencies that help residents get back on their feet.
We distribute food to our neighbors in North Seattle three times a week, keeping over 1,200 individuals fed. Our work would not be possible without the thousands of volunteer hours served here every year.
