Puyallup Food Bank
The food bank’s mission is to provide food to those in need with dignity, to utilize food surpluses, and to increase public awareness on issues of hunger in our community. As a distribution center, we save countless dollars for other food banks, nonprofits and charitable agencies by providing an efficient and centralized location for collecting and distributing food.
Our food bank is a volunteer-based organization. We rely upon churches, individuals, businesses and service clubs in the community for the resources needed to sustain this ministry.
volunteer needs: Drivers to pick up food donations, phone monitors and servers on a regular basis.

We NEED volunteers to cook and serve food and be willing to be on call as we do not know when disaster will strike. You will need to be willing to go through training.
volunteer needs: People willing to serve at a moments notice to help keep our first responders nourished while they deal with disaster.
