FareStart is a Seattle nonprofit that delivers meals 365 days a year to several area emergency and transitional housing facilities. On the weekends and holidays, when FareStart has fewer culinary students onsite, their chefs rely on volunteer power to ensure that they can get these important meals to our neighbors in need. No experience required, but you will learn more than you thought possible about preparing food of all sorts! On an average day FareStart provides approximately 1,000 meals to local area emergency and transitional housing facilities, like the Downtown Emergency Service Center. Volunteers in the Contract Kitchen help prepare meals by completing basic food preparation, such as peeling and chopping vegetables, assembling lasagnas, etc. Chefs will assign tasks based on individual skill and comfort level. No cooking experience necessary! To learn more about this nonprofit organization, visit farestart.org.
