Review for FareStart, Seattle, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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!
