Urgent request from White Center Food Bank: Drivers needed

February 15, 2013 at 3:39 pm | In How to help, West Seattle news | 4 Comments

Just received from the White Center Food Bank, which also serves part of West Seattle, and they describe the request as urgent:

The White Center Food Bank depends on donations of bread, produce, meat and non-perishable food to help feed the clients. Can you or someone you know fill this important position at the White Center Food Bank by volunteering one morning/early afternoon shift a week as driver? Volunteer drivers must be able to lift 35 pounds & have a valid drivers license with no driving infractions. Training and food bank van provided. Commitment of six months requested. Contact Audrey Zemke at (206) 762-2848 or audrey@whitecenterfoodbank.org to volunteer or for information. Come ride along and help out for a shift to see what it’s like if you’re curious.

  1. Why do they need “drivers”? What about cargo bikes (or “normal” bikes with trailers)?

  2. I am sure they would be happy with any help offered. Please contact Audrey for specifics.

  3. Really Jeff, if you can help in any way, please help. I will say though that it will take much longer and time is not something the food bank has a surplus of.
    I volunteer there regularly and hope someone can step up and help. It will make you feel good, I promise.

  4. Hi Jeff, I’m not sure if you’re joking or not. Either way, I thought I’d share with you what I’ve heard as to why the WCFB needs drivers. I don’t know how many times a week, if it’s once, or more than that, the White Center Food Bank drives to a couple of different senior housing facilities to bring people food, who for various reasons (health, physical issues, etc … ) can’t or don’t drive, and wouldn’t be able to get food otherwise. I really encourage you to go to WCFB’s website. I’m certain it will answer some, if not all, of your questions. Take care.
