Volunteer: PNA Hot Meal Program

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

In this time of COVID-19, we are even more aware of the need of personal connection, building community and neighbors helping neighbors, all while taking precautions to keep us all safe and healthy. Our COVID requirements for in-person volunteers are evolving with CDC, State  and King County guidelines, and may vary by program or event site.  Additionally, all in-person activities are subject to change, cancellation, or attendance requirements in accordance with current CDC, State, and County guidelines. Please check back frequently and read our current COVID-19 guidelines and protocols.

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.
