Mobile Food Bank

Mobile Food Bank Header


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.

What do volunteers do at the Nourish/EFN Mobile Food Bank?
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)!

Mobile Food Bank InsideThe Mobile Food Bank goes to 10 sites, one day per week, for two-hour sessions. Volunteers are asked to arrive 30 minutes early to help with setup and stay 30 minutes after the closing time to ensure everyone can get through the line. Volunteers have the opportunity to come out to a site one day per week or join in on a rotation where volunteers attend a site 1-2 times per month.

To volunteer at the Nourish/EFN Mobile Food Bank, please call our Coordinator of Volunteer Activities at (253) 584-1040 or e-mail
