Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank has a 50-year history of supporting our community by distributing food and other vital resources with compassion and dignity. Our staff, volunteers, donors, and community partners help our East King County neighbors stay healthy and housed by providing free food, clothing, hygiene and household items, and case management services. We believe that food is a right, not a privilege. We strive to provide a gracious space where all people feel welcome, safe, and cared for. 


The Food Service Assistant will play a hands-on role in providing food and basic hygiene needs to our clients when they need it most. Due to increased community need — likely based on the effects of the pandemic and inflation — we need your help to expand our current operational model and to restart and expand some of our program areas. This role will be a vital part of all daily operations and programs, from receiving donations through providing food and assistance to clients, many of whom are unhoused or experiencing housing instability.

We run a 2-week schedule, and the Food Service Assistant will work two weekday evening shifts until 7:30 p.m. There will also be one Saturday morning per month required to assist with food donation drives.

If you are passionate about this mission and serving those in need, please consider joining our team. We welcome your positive energy and endless potential.

Interviews will be scheduled in August for a September start date. Position is contingent upon funding.
