Help ensure food security for your neighbors by volunteering with North Helpline Emergency Services and Food Bank!
Everyday we get wonderful donations from local stores, pea patches, and individual donors. Help us ensure we are only distributing food that we would pick up ourselves!
Volunteers are needed to inspect the quality of food coming in from donations and partner organizations. You can expect to work with 8 to 9 other volunteers as we sift through items. We keep volunteer crews small to help with social distancing but that means we count on everyone to show up for their shift and be on time.
We have food bank receiving and sorting opportunities throughout the week including:
Tuesday from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm
Thursday from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm
Friday from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm
Interested in working with us? Please email email@example.com 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.
