Food is the tool we use to transform the lives of our students, and food is the tool we use to bring the community together to celebrate our impact.


Great Food, Better Lives Gala Auction

FareStart's annual Great Food, Better Lives Gala Auction to raise funds in support of FareStart’s job training programs. It is a festive evening including a silent auction reception, a wine auction, an elegant multi-course gourmet dinner, a live auction and entertainment all taking place with the backdrop of Seattle’s sparkling skyline.

Guest Chef Night

Every Thursday night, FareStart hosts a unique opportunity to experience dinner created for one night only by a renowned local chef to celebrate the success of our students at Guest Chef Night. Each week a different Guest Chef works with students to prepare a gourmet three-course meal at the FareStart Restaurant in downtown Seattle. Through this incredible partnership, we have raised over $5 million in revenue which has gone directly back into our program to support our student job training and placement services.
