Recruiting Organization: Backpack Brigade

Summer is nearly over and we need a record number of volunteers this 2022-23 school year! We are powered by over 100 weekly volunteers with our first packing shift of the year on August 29th with fun one-off stuff up until then :) Help us hit the ground running!

We are in need of food preppers on Monday and Wednesday mornings! You will help prep food for bags that go right to kids suffering from homelessness or housing insecurity in King County.

We are the largest nonprofit whose sole mission is to end weekend hunger in Washington State. By delivering bags of food to schools, we feed over 3,000 kids per week to help them make it from Friday lunch to Monday breakfast without a single stomach growl. We serve schools in Renton, Laurelhurst, Bellevue, and everywhere in between. Make an impact in your community today!

Shift times are 8:00 am to 11:00 am Mondays and Wednesdays, but we want to accommodate your schedule.

Prepping food requires you to lift sometimes heavy, sometimes light food from our warehouse to the tables where they’re packed on Tues/Thurs.

Our warehouse is located near Showbox Sodo, Filson, and Krispy Kreme on 1st Avenue South Seattle.

Please consider becoming a weekly packer for Backpack Brigade. With recent expansions into new districts, we are at our limit and don’t have the heart to turn anyone away. Do something for the most vulnerable in our community today!

Thank you so much :)
