Volunteers needed at the Tukwila Pantry
The Tukwila Pantry serves about 25% of the Tukwila residential population. That’s a lot of food that moves into food bags and into peoples’ homes. That’s more than a million pounds of food a year. Along with moving this amount of food there’s the need to help package bulk items into smaller sizes, stock shelves, data entry, breaking down boxes, sorting produce and canned goods, registering clients, picking up food at their source, helping to raise funds. Tukwila Pantry needs volunteer help to help meet the tremendous need to keep people from going hungry. If you are interested please contact the Pantry at 206-431-8293.
