Repack Project

Repack Project Header 3

Volunteers at our Repack Project help prepare bulk foods for distribution to food banks by repackaging the food into smaller, family portions. Bulk foods may include rice, beans, oats frozen corn and peas, oranges, and apples.

No experience is necessary to volunteer. EFN staff is on site to provide training and oversight. Most of the volunteer positions require volunteers to lift up to 50 pounds periodically (if you are unable to do this, please let us know when you register). The minimum age to volunteer as an individual at a Repack Project is 16 (youth ages 14-15 can volunteer with a parent or guardian). Space is limited and registration is required.


 

To volunteer for a Repack Project, please call our Coordinator of Volunteer Activities at (253) 584-1040 or e-mail volunteer@efoodnet.org.

Individuals and small groups up to 7 people are welcome to attend any of the scheduled Repack Projects listed on the Repack Calendar at the bottom of this page.

Groups of 8 or More Volunteers

Groups can schedule their own Repack Project! Volunteering at a Repack is a great opportunity for business, civic, and school groups to work together. Opportunities are available in the morning and afternoon Wednesday through Saturday. We strive to accommodate all volunteers and will try to coordinate special shifts for groups. We ask for a minimum of 8 volunteers but can take up to 15. To learn more please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at (253) 584-1040 or volunteer@efoodnet.org.


Every EFN volunteer must fill out a Volunteer Liability Waiver before volunteering for the first time. Fill out your waiver today!
