Since January of 2018, Pike Market Food Bank started opening for grocery distribution on Wednesday evenings! We need volunteers to help set up, facilitate and clean up our new evening grocery distribution.
On distribution days, volunteer roles include check-in, greeting shoppers and directing the line, distributing food to shoppers,packing delivery bags, stocking, repacking pastries and produce, logging and organizing food deliveries, and breaking down boxes.
Set-up runs 3-4pm, distribution runs 4-6pm, and break-down usually only takes 15 minutes. We prefer volunteers who can commit to the entire session, but are flexible about times.

About Pike Market Senior Center & Food Bank
85 PIKE ST STE 200, SEATTLE, WA 98101, US
In downtown Seattle, the Pike Market Senior Center strives to make each day better and safer for older adults; the Pike Market Food Bank serves people of all ages who face hunger. Together, we provide services, activities, and support that lead to more self sufficient and fulfilling lives.
Pike Market Food Bank has been around since the 70s but we are always trying to make improvements for our guests. We are open for volunteers Monday through Friday 9am - 3pm and Wednesdays 9am - 6:00pm. Volunteers can help with all sorts of projects, from picking up donations from Pike Market vendors to delivering grocery bags to homebound clients to stocking shelves and serving guests who come in for groceries.
We serve groceries to about 700 people per week and another 100 receive grocery deliveries. However, we see more people needing our services every day. We can only keep up with this need with support from our neighbors like you! If you would like to donate your time as a delivery driver, general labor, or other skills, please don't hesitate to reach out.
We'll work with your schedule.
