Volunteer FAQ's

Masks are encouraged for all staff, volunteers, and shoppers.

I need community service volunteer hours. How do I do that? 

We are currently not accepting court-ordered or school community service volunteers and will not provide a signed record for hours volunteered. We will update our website when are able to bring this program back. We're sorry, no exceptions.

What is the age requirement to volunteer?

The minimum age for volunteering is 16. High schoolers aged 16 or 17 must be accompanied by an adult who is also registered to volunteer. NOTE: Some programs may require a minimum age of 18. Please carefully read the details on the sign-up page.

What should I wear?

Please come in comfortable clothes, dress in layers, and bring a rain jacket/sunscreen (depending on the weather), as some roles may be outside.  Closed-toe shoes are required at the food bank and when volunteering at the AtWork! warehouse.

Can I volunteer as a driver?

Yes, please! We often need more drivers. These opportunities are on Monday - Thursday mornings. Drivers must be at least 25 years old. Please email operations@issaquahfoodbank.org for more information, and include your availability, size of vehicle etc.  

I can’t leave the house but I want to volunteer. Is there anything I can do to help?

Yes, you can share our Amazon wish list and volunteer sign-up with family and friends. Thank you!
