Below, you'll find our volunteer requirements and brief summaries of our ministries.

Basic Volunteer Requirements:

Note: Minors (12 years of age and older) with a parent or legal guardian are permitted in certain positions.

Must be able to complete a volunteer application packet, which includes a background check.


Food Bank:

The Salvation Army of Spokane Food Bank assists approximately 1,500 people per month. We are a client choice program, meaning that each client that comes through our doors gets to “shop” for their own food with dignity.   This requires us to utilize volunteers like you to assist clients and keep the shelves constantly stocked with a variety of food choices.


Assistance is needed: shopper, warehouse, stocking shelves, and sorting food, among other things.

Volunteers are needed Monday through Friday, approximately 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM.

Volunteers must wear close toed shoes, and shirts with sleeves (no tank tops).


Thursday Night Community Meal:

Every Thursday, volunteers from The Salvation Army cook and serve a community meal to over 175 people in the Salvation Army Multi-Purpose room at 222 E. Indiana Ave.  Shifts are from 4:30 PM to approximately 7:00 PM.  Volunteers need to report to the Kitchen and sign in and wash up. 

Duties include table serving, cleaning up, and talking with those who are the most at-risk in our community.

Family Emergency Shelter:

The Salvation Army Family Emergency Shelter provides a safe housing opportunity for families with children to stay for up to 90 days. 

Volunteers are needed to assist in the daily tracking of client activity, data entry, client referrals, cleaning and turn-over of empty rooms and obtaining donations.


       The Salvation Army campus in Spokane sits on 6 acres.  We always need volunteers to assist with basic cleaning, landscaping, and even one-time large scale projects.
