Description

About FareStart:

FareStart provides a community that transforms lives by empowering homeless and disadvantaged men, women, and families to achieve self-sufficiency through life skills, job training and employment in the food service industry. We empower each individual to achieve his or her highest potential by restoring hope, giving respect, nurturing self-confidence, granting trust, and creating opportunity.


FareStart's Community Meals program incorporates recovered food into nutritious meals serving several area emergency and transitional facilities. Come out to Food Bank Farm, a nonprofit partner, to harvest produce with us that will help Community Meals feed hungry people. Food Bank Farm’s mission is to end hunger in the PNW by growing fresh produce for area food banks. Please feel free to sign up for one or all of these opportunities.

 

Volunteer Duties: Volunteers will harvest a variety of vegetables from Food Bank Farm. This  includes bending, squatting and kneeling.
