I have been volunteering with FareStart in Seattle for about 6 years now. The community that revolves around this organization is top notch! Everyone is so friendly and there only for the right reasons - to help the student programs that FareStart provides. I am very passionate about FareStart and hope more spread the word to keep their programs thriving.

The first time I volunteered I went to one of their auctions. I was so touched to hear all of the stories of those who have been through the program and to see the AMAZING support that they had from the community. I have been volunteering with them ever since. Great vision, great staff and great results!

FareStart rocks. Volunteered in the kitchen monthly for about a year. Worth it in every way.

I have volunteered in the kitchen once a month for over a year and have really enjoyed getting to know the chefs and students. It is a great program that is changing lives! Also, they really support and encourage their volunteers!

I have been a weekly volunteer at FareStart for over three years, and I love this organization! Volunteers are welcomed with gratitude and respect, and rewarded with a deep sense of belonging. The passion for transformation inherent in the culture at FareStart is life-changing, not just for students but for all who come through the door.

Fare Start is a remarkable social invention. By accepting work trainees from off the streets and teaching them a disciplined array of kitchen skills, they are providing job skills for life. By contracting with shelters to provide food for residents, they connect the eating needs of the dispossessed with the food preparation training skills their trainees need. By bringing leading local chefs in to provide weekly fundraising dinners, they provide more sophisticated culinary skills to the trainees and given the chefs and trainees mutual exposure, great for later job hunting. To be in the middle of those kitchens as a volunteer is a special treat, fun every time. Whether cutting up dozens of tear producing onions or helping to produce 750 burritos or delivering and serving meals to shelter residents, it is a remarkably satisfying sense of participating in something really meaningful.

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!
