Join A Committee! 

Help by lending your personal or professional skills on one of the following committees – Marketing & Communications, Stewardship, Sponsorship, Finance, Donor Engagement, and Community Services.


Special Events Volunteer Opportunities

We always need help in our big events like Celebrate the Market! and Sunset Supper. It’s a great way to give back and then enjoy the events. Volunteers help with set-up, greeting guests, and more. These are large food and beverage events that are 21+, so volunteers must be at least 21 years of age. We also produce a handful of smaller events throughout the year that rely on volunteer support.

Let us know if you’d like to sign-up for our volunteer email list to receive more information about events.


Volunteer with Social Services in the Market

There are ongoing volunteer opportunities with the Pike Market Senior Center, the Food Bank, the Preschool, Heritage House at the Market, and with the Food Access Program. Volunteers work as food distributors, deliver groceries to home bound Market residents, work in a classroom, and much more! This is a great opportunity to complete service hours, bring your organization or school to volunteer, or to simply enjoy volunteering as an individual.

If you are interested in volunteering with the Pike Market Food Bank, call (206) 626-6462 or email volunteers@pmsc_dtfb.org!

If you’re interested in volunteering with Heritage House, please email Cara Aguilera and Suzette Eby.

Share Your Talents
