Sustainable Renton Free Grocery Store This is Sustainable Renton’s newest project. We need help transporting the food from pick up location to storage or arranged drop off sites. We could always use help during our Free Grocery Store hours, setting up, dispensing food, and cleaning up. Arriving 60 minutes before the store opens and staying 60 minutes after is helpful. Please fill out this form if interested in volunteering at the Free Grocery Store or helping with the Gleaning Project throughout the week.


Sustainable Renton Community Farm is always looking for volunteers to weed, water, turn compost piles or lay wood chips on the garden paths. Any of these jobs can happen on any day for any amount of time that you have available.


Sustainable Renton Farm Stand is currently on hold due to COVID-19. 

Sustainable Renton Board of Directors:

Our Board of Directors ensures that the activities, projects, and actions or our organization follow the Mission and Vision of Sustainable Renton.  We welcome the expertise, energy, and time of individuals that would like to become more deeply involved in how our non-profit runs.

We particularly seek individuals with expertise in the following areas:

  • Volunteer Coordinator. This role would entail recruiting volunteers to help for either the community farm or food co-op projects. Experience with volunteer recruitment with non-profits is preferred, but not required.
  • Grant-Writing Coordinator. This role would involve researching possible grants for our many projects and writing grant proposals to be reviewed by the Sustainable Renton board. Experience with grant-writing is highly beneficial, but not required.
  • Fundraising Coordinator. This role would involve working with the Sustainable Renton board to develop fundraising sources to support our projects-these sources could include events, private donors, matching donation programs. Experience with fundraising is preferred, but not required.
  • Media Specialist. We would love to have someone who has a few hours a month to dedicate to the upkeep of our website. Making sure the information available is accurate and timely.
