Hot Meal Program

Join us to help address hunger in our community. The PNA Hot Meal Program serves 150-200 meals three times weekly.

Meal Program Assistant volunteers may be asked to help organize inventory, set up tables, wash pots and more!  The kitchen is a fast-paced and ever-changing environment – a real-life Iron Chef experience!  Kitchen experience is preferred, but not required, as long as volunteers come with an open mind about what kind of help is needed each day. Meal Program Assistants must be age 14 or older.  Due to the size of our kitchen, our Hot Meal Program cannot accommodate most volunteer groups larger than four people; please inquire about any group openings we might have.

Volunteer application, background check, and valid Washington State food worker card (or ability to get one) required.  6-month commitment preferred.  Please note in your sign up if you are fulfilling a service requirement, and include the number of hours needed and your deadline.

Current Volunteer Opportunities

As of 2.8.2024, we are looking to expand our pool of substitutes. Starting as a sub allows volunteers to pick the shifts that work for them, get a feel for our program and team, and then get first pick when we have a permanent spot open up! Feel free to sign up for whichever shifts work for you, and we’ll be in touch with next steps.
