Thank you so much for your interest in volunteering your time at Second Harvest.  
We want every volunteer experience to be rewarding! 

Second Harvest relies on volunteers to help us sort and repackage food for distribution to area food banks and meal programs. Last year, our Pasco center distributed 6.9 million pounds of food to our network of 65 area food banks and meal centers. Our schedule is listed below.

We require that all volunteers and guests of volunteers create user accounts on our website prior to assisting in our Volunteer Center.  It’s easy to create an account online, just click on your preferred shift below to register and sign up while there’s still space available. If you’re unable to register online or have any questions, please contact tcvolunteer@2-harvest.org or 545-0787.

If you have any questions or are looking for other ways to get involved, please call (509) 545-0787 or email tcvolunteer@2-harvest.org.

Note:  Second Harvest does not participate in court-ordered service.  

 
Never doubt that your support makes a difference!  Thank you for being part of the solution to hunger.
