Meal Making at FareStart

  • FareStart 700 Virginia Street Seattle, WA, 98101 United States (map)

Event Type = Volunteer: You will be volunteering at this event

Join us in the FareStart Contract Kitchen! We will be preparing food alongside FareStart's chefs and students preparing food for shelters.

This is a hands-on kitchen opportunity. Come prepared to chop, stir, and get a little messy. The group will be guided by FareStart's trained chef so cooking skills are not required but participants should be comfortable using knives and other kitchen equipment as instructed.

Our Nonprofit Partner that this event supports: FareStart

Why you are needed: FareStart is a culinary job training and placement program for homeless and disadvantaged individuals. Since 1992, FareStart has provided opportunities for nearly 7,000 people to transform their lives, while also serving over 6 million meals to disadvantaged men, women, and children.

Can I see photos of past events? Yes, they can be found here.

Who can sign up for this event? Anyone is welcome to volunteer for our events. There’s no long-term commitment and you’re welcome to sign up for just one event, or multiple events that fit your style. Once signed up, you’ll be kept in the loop on all event details and what to expect via email and text communication from our team. 

Can I sign up my group? If you are interested in signing up 4 or more people for a volunteer event, we ask that you contact us instead of registering here.

What is the cancellation policy? Space for our events is limited and we often have a waiting list of people that would like to attend. Once you register for the event we will hold a space just for you so we ask that if, for any reason, you cannot attend your scheduled shift, please make sure to cancel your registration so someone else can take your spot! You can cancel online or by reaching out to our volunteer coordination team.

Do you offer documentation? Upon request, we will gladly supply you with documentation for your volunteer hours for work or school purposes. We do NOT, however, provide court documentation. We do not believe that volunteering is a punishment and under no circumstances will we provide documentation for court-ordered community service.
