FareStart is a non-profit organization that trains homeless and disadvantaged individuals for jobs in the culinary industry, empowering them to transform their lives. FareStart delivers meals 365 days a year to several area homeless shelters. On the weekends and holidays, when there are fewer FareStart culinary students onsite, FareStart chefs rely on volunteer power to ensure that we can get these important meals to our neighbors in need.
Tasks include basic food preparation: Peeling vegetables, chopping, assembling lasagnas, making sandwiches, mixing salad dressing, etc. Chefs will assign tasks based on individual skill/comfort level.
FareStart insurance requires all kitchen volunteers to be at least 18 years old. Wear sturdy clothes which can get dirty, but FareStart will also provide aprons to wear during our shift. You must wear closed-toe shoes, pants/slacks/jeans (no shorts), and either a hat (baseball or similar) or a hairnet (provided by FareStart). Lunch is also provided!
Please note that confidentiality is essential for FareStart students' safety and that a photo release must be signed by every FareStart student and graduate before their photograph is taken for any public display. The "Volunteer Boundaries and Expectations" document is available if you have specific questions.
FareStart's Contract Kitchen entrance is located on the Virginia Street side of the FareStart building (look for the white door near the alley entrance and a hanging sign on the wall).
