How We Work

You want to help?  We make it easy! 

It’s a remarkably simple system, built around green bags and two types of volunteers.

As a Donor, you get a green Thurston County Food Project bag from your Neighborhood Coordinator. While you shop for groceries, get an extra thing or two to put in your green bag. On the second Saturday of even months (February, April, June, August, October & December) put your bag on the porch and your Neighborhood Coordinator will pick it up and leave another green bag for the next pick up. It’s that simple.
