Give your time during the COVID-19 outbreak!

We need volunteers and have shifts availalable for emergency food packing and distribution at our main building.  Please ensure that you have read the CDC and King County Public Health Department guidelines.


Thank you for jumping into help during this unusual time! We have implemented changes in order to keep our staff, volunteers, clients and donors as safe as possible during the COVID-19 outbreak.  

  • Please take a moment to review our Travel & Safety Policy.

  • We have limited the number of staff and volunteers in the building at a time, this means that every volunteer is needed.  Please give a 48-hour notice of any shift changes.

  • To limit the amount of people that volunteers and staff will come into contact with, you will be able to volunteer for one Team only.  The Teams are RED Team (Monday, Wednesday, Friday) and Blue Team (Tuesday, Thursday) and for the remainder of the health crisis select shifts ONLY with this Team.  For example, if your first shift with us is on Tuesday, you have joined the BLUE Team, and all future shifts inside the food bank must be on a BLUE Team day.

  • Per CDC guidelines, we are asking all volunteers returning from travel from out of state to stay home for 14 days before returning to the IFCB. We know this may seem a bit overcautious, but feel we can't be too careful to ensure the health and safety of all our clients, volunteers, and staff. 

  • High schoolers aged 16 and 17 years old are welcome with a parent (one parent per high schooler), the student and the parent must both be signed up to volunteer

  • If you are a Community Service volunteer, please email Lisa BEFORE signing up for shifts.
