Description

COVID-19 has impacted the world in countless ways. Across the U.S., our neighbors are experiencing a shocking health crisis, unprecedented unemployment, and for many with high risk health conditions, the inability to safely be outside their home to access the basic resources they’re most in need of.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, the number of people in Washington State relying on food assistance has more than DOUBLED to over 2 million – stretching food banks beyond capacity in the face of decreased volunteerism and food donations. They simply don’t have the ability to serve everyone who depends on them, and are in desperate need of your help.

As a Washington Service Corps member serving through the WA COVID Response Corps, you can make a significant difference in the lives of so many!

Serving at a local food bank through the Response Corps, you can help by:
• distributing food boxes to customers through food bank locations and home deliveries
• supplying food backpacks to people experiencing homelessness
• picking up food from local grocers and farms
• managing and inventorying incoming food deliveries
• re-packaging bulk food items for individuals and small families
• recruiting and managing food bank volunteers

Together, we can get much-needed food to more people in need.

BENEFITS
• Monthly stipend
• Health insurance coverage
• Childcare assistance, if qualified
• Upon successful completion of the service term, an education award that can be used to pay for college tuition, pay off existing qualified school loans, or – if the member is at least 55 years of age – can be transferred to a child or grandchild.
