I've been volunteering at the Fare Start kitchen (food prep, delivering meals to shelters) for more than a year now - what an amazing organization. Perfect integration - students learn valuable life- and professional-skills in culinary arts which position them for jobs; dozens of shelters benefit by receiving the "fruits" of their labors in the kitchen. And the public gets to partake of wonderful fare at Guest Chef Nights and regular lunches, giving the students more chances to practice their new skills. Most of all, for me, it has been personally meaningful to be helping this great organization at the grass roots level - working with the students, chefs, other volunteers in a well-organized yet convivial environment. Can't believe there's a better model anywhere!

I love both volunteering at Farestart and attending their events as a patron. It's amazing to see a whole community rally together to support this cause!

Our community has been serving monthly with FareStart for almost two years now, and love that we get to partner with an organization that is doing so many great things in our city. It's not only a great place to volunteer and serve at, but a great place to build relationships!

FareStart is a Seattle based not-for-profit that provides culinary and life skill training for homeless and disadvantaged individuals. FareStart is also a key partner in Catalyst Kitchens and helps non profits across the country develop similar transformative programs. It is truly inspiring to see FareStart students transform their lives and move from the streets to stable employment and housing. FareStart also provides over 2000 meals to low income day cares and shelters every day. I've volunteered at FareStart for the past 12 years and it has been the most meaningful work I've ever done. Delivering and serving shelter meals side by side with students who are themselves gaining the skills to become self sufficient is a humbling and fulfilling experience.
