Are you looking for an opportunity to make a positive impact on your community? At the Thurston County Food Bank, our mission is to eliminate hunger within our community, in the spirit of neighbor helping neighbor. We currently provide groceries to about 6,000 families a month throughout Thurston County!

Getting all of the food off our shelves and onto the dinner table requires a tremendous amount of labor. That’s where our incredible network of dedicated volunteers comes in. We are always looking for more volunteers to help us receive, process, and distribute food to the hundreds of households we support during our service days.

Located at 7027 Martin Way E. Olympia, WA 98516, the Thurston County Food Bank’s Lacey Food Pantry hosts weekly food distribution days every Tuesday and Thursday. Each service day has two different, 3-hour shifts: 9am - 12:30pm & 12pm - 3pm. choose which time and date works best for you! We also have an evening shopping shift for our clients once a month (2 nd Wednesday of each month) where volunteers are needed from 3pm - 6:30pm.

Our volunteers:

  • Set up a welcoming, shopping-like experience for our clients
  • Process and sort produce, bread, and other foodstuffs
  • Staff stations for food distribution for our clients
  • Clean and organize our working space
