Lend a hand on the Mobile Food Bank @ Spanaway Elementary School
Oct 31 @ 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Volunteer on the Nourish/EFN Mobile Food Bank!

Emergency Food Network has teamed up with Nourish Pierce County to bring food to people in need in underserved communities. Visitors to the Mobile Food Bank use a small shopping cart along the center aisle of the trailer to select food from the shelves on either side.

Volunteers help check clients in on a computer and distribute food directly to people in need. This is a perfect opportunity for individuals, students (must be 16 years old), and groups (rotate up your staff or members through one of the 5 positions each week)!

To register, please contact our Coordinator of Volunteer Activities, Merrit Reed at (253) 584-1040 or merrit@efoodnet.org.
