Saturday mornings are a great time to volunteer!
Saturday Food & Clothing Bank
The Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank serves an average of 450 households each week thanks to the amazing team of volunteers who come in each day to make that possible. Volunteers are needed during the weekend to help sort donations, organize and stock foods, portion bulk foods, sort and display new clothing bank donations, and do the clean up tasks necessary to get the food bank ready for shopping hours on Monday.

Lift with a buddy and/or ask for assistance if something looks like it might be too heavy for you.
Please alert a staff member if you have any food allergies that may prevent you from portioning or handling foods.
