Summer Volunteering with Tilth Alliance

Over the summer, OLS students spend time volunteering with a local community organization. This summer our students are volunteering through Tilth Alliance, an organization founded in 2016 with a mission to build an ecologically sound, economically viable and socially equitable food system.

OLS volunteers spend time each week packing Good Food Bags with sustainable, fresh produce. From the Tilth Alliance website, “[t]he Good Food Bag program is an innovative weekly produce subscription that improves access to fresh produce for families in Seattle and South King County with limited financial resources or inadequate access to fresh food.”

Volunteering is a great way for students to build on and practice the skills they’re learning in the OLS program, gain work experience, and give back to their community.

You can learn more about Tilth Alliance and the Good Food Bag program on their website.
