Do you have an over abundance of produce from your backyard, farm business, or community garden?
Bringing extra fruits and vegetables to your local food bank is the best way to ensure your hard work doesn't go to waste and your neighbors have healthy, fresh food to eat.
Use our website to find the closest food bank to your home or business and contact them directly to find the best time to donate.
The South King County Food Coalition is a non-profit organization that encourages community members to donate fresh produce to local food pantries. All donations are tax-deductible and go directly to increasing food security in your community.
1. Volunteering at a member food bank
To volunteer at your local food bank, please find their contact information on the tab with their name on it and contact the food bank directly. The South King County Food Coalition does not schedule volunteers for individual food banks.
2. Volunteering at Elk Run Farm
Elk Run Farm is always looking for more volunteers to help with tasks that range from watering seedlings to harvesting fruits and vegetables. We accept children of all ages, as well as corporate groups, church groups, field trips, and families. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and availability to get started!
3. Food sampling and demonstrations in food banks
Are you an avid cook? Do you religiously watch cooking shows for inspiration? Love a challenge? We are seeking volunteers to facilitate sampling and food demonstrations inside the food banks so that clients can taste unfamiliar foods before selecting them, learn a new recipe, and generally make the food bank a more welcoming setting. Email Maggie at email@example.com if you are interested in helping!
4. Other projects
Have a great idea you want to share with the coalition? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are looking for flexible community members who want to help on more general projects such as delivering produce for Farm to Food Pantry, rallying local artists, or organizing a fundraiser on our behalf.
