Get involved in small or big ways to help us solve hunger in our communities.
Volunteers are the backbone of the N.E.W. Hunger Coalition. Most of our food banks are entirely volunteer run, so you can start where you live.
Serve at your local food pantry by unloading and bagging food or helping people connect with the resources they need. Contact any one of them by going clicking on their link from the dropdown navigation on this site.
The N.E.W. Hunger Coalition is looking for passionate volunteers. Consider the following opportunities:
Plant an extra row for the Hunger Coalition or share your extra garden produce and NEWHC will get it delivered to a food pantry in need. Gleaning: are you able to pick fruit and vegetables and bring it to NEWHC? Call Stephani to join this program: 509-690-2460.
- Pick up and deliver local produce to our member food pantries with our CoolPup Trailers.
- Giving Financially-sign up to donate monthly through the donate link. Reliable financial contributions keep us serving and feeding our neighbors.
- Do you have extra gardening materials, vegetable seeds, garden pots/planters or soil? Consider donating them to our Grow Your Own Row Program. We will share your excess with those who can't afford them and teach them gardening skills. Call Kyla Lewinsohn: 360-999-9495.
- Share your skill set with others by teaching a class – gardening, cooking, preservation, shopping and budgeting for healthy food.

Give back to the community by becoming a NEW Hunger Coalition financial sponsor. Tap the donate button above.
Hold an annual food drive at your business. Perhaps run a turkey drive-$20 buys a holiday meal for a family in need.
Our food banks and member association buildings and facilities are almost all maintained through volunteer labor or services offered at cost. We could use your help!
- Offer products (building materials, plumbing fixtures, or commercial refrigeration fixtures)
- Offer professional services (vehicle maintenance, plumbing and electrical services, flooring installation, or computer and IT support)
- Are you a media company-write an article or announcement for NEWHC and help us get the word out to help us end hunger.
