The Bite2Go program feeds nearly 10,000 food-insecure children and teens in the region. We simply couldn’t do our work without volunteers. Each year, they step forward to prepare, pack and deliver food to nourish hungry children. You can play a role in helping the most vulnerable among us. Sign up to volunteer now. 



Each week, our volunteers open cases of bulk food items and stage them for Bite2Go kit builds.


Bite2Go weekend food supplies nourish thousands of elementary school kids across our region. You can help pack Bite2Go bags with nutritious, shelf-stable food during a fun, fast-paced kit building activity 


Join the team that hands out pre-built Bite2Go bags for delivery to our partner elementary schools.


Bite2Go serves food-insecure kids in outlying Eastern Washington and North Idaho communities. Our volunteer drivers use Second Harvest cargo vans to deliver Bite2Go bags to partner schools in those areas. Volunteers should have a current Washington driver’s license and be able to pass a Motor Vehicle Record background check. Click here to learn more.


Your gift of time or money could be matched by your employer! Many employers sponsor programs that match charitable contributions or volunteer hours made by their employees, retirees, and/or employee spouses. To learn if your employer provides matching gifts, check with your human resources department or call Shannon at Second Harvest: (509) 252-6242.


Second Harvest, along with generous community supporters, provides nearly 10,000 elementary, middle, and high school students food for the weekends through our Bite2Go. Many of these children face chronic food shortages at home and without Bite2Go would not get enough to eat on Saturdays and Sundays.

In partnership with At The Core, supporters and volunteers, Bite2Go shares a mix of easy-to-open, single-serving, nutritious, nonperishable food items for meals and snacks over the weekend with schoolchildren in need.

Please consider joining our team of dedicated volunteer drivers!

What if I need help with the volunteer website?

If you need assistance, please contact Glori Cheevers at or (509) 252-6243.

Can children volunteer?

Anyone 14 and older may volunteer. Volunteers under 14 must be accompanied by a parent or adult chaperone and must stay with their parent/chaperone in the assigned work area(s). Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate children under 9 years old.

For some volunteer opportunities, a minimum age requirement may apply. Please see the details in the event descriptions on our events calendar for more information.

If you have additional questions, please contact Glori Cheevers at or (509) 252-6243.

Are you able to accommodate the special needs of a handicapped or disabled person as a volunteer?

We do everything possible to allow volunteers with special needs to volunteer with us.

For additional information, please contact Glori Cheevers at or (509) 252-6243.

Can I volunteer if I have food allergies?

Because the food we receive and sort is donated from many different places, we cannot guarantee that our food hasn’t come into contact with certain food items, such as peanuts. Also, because we work with donated food, we may not know which food product volunteers will be packing the day of the activity.

For additional information, please contact Glori Cheevers at or (509) 252-6243.

Do I need to schedule in advance, or can I just show up?

All volunteers must be scheduled in advance through our volunteer website. Once you are signed up for an event, you will receive a confirmation email. You will receive instructions from our staff upon arrival the day of your event.

What if I want to book a group or reserve spots for multiple people?

All group volunteer opportunities need to be scheduled with our Volunteer Center staff. It is helpful if you have dates and times in mind ahead of time. Please try to book groups one to two months in advance, as our events fill up quickly! If you have changes or cancelations, please contact us as soon as possible. The ideal group size is 60 volunteers per shift.

If you are interested in booking a group to volunteer at Second Harvest, please contact Glori Cheevers at or (509) 252-6243.

Do I need to attend a training or orientation before volunteering?

Most volunteer opportunities do not require any advanced training. You can expect to receive an overview of expectations and your role at the beginning of your volunteer shift.

How do I get there, and is there parking?

For Bite2Go volunteer opportunities, parking is available onsite at the Wolff Family Child Hunger Solution Center.

We are located at 402 N. Perry St., 99202. Click here for directions to our Spokane location.

Does Second Harvest accept court-related community service volunteers?

Second Harvest does not provide court-related community service.

Do you provide documented proof of volunteer hours?

We can provide documented proof of volunteer hours upon request. At the end of the shift, please let the Volunteer Center supervisor know if you need this for work or school purposes.

Additionally, you can access logged service hours directly through Volunteer Hub, the site used to sign up for volunteer opportunities. Click on “Your Name” in the top right corner of the site. Then, click on the “View Hours” tab. You can view your volunteer history through this tab as well.
