A blog that documents all things Seattle Works…and much much more!

Seattle Works Board of Directors at Farestart August 9, 2012

Filed under: Board of Directors — seattleworks @ 7:34 pm

In late July the Seattle Works Board took their call to serve, well, literally. They bypassed their monthly meeting to spend the evening waiting tables at FareStart! The group had a blast serving a four-course meal prepared by Chef Bill Ranniger of Duke’s Chowder House, and working alongside FareStart students, volunteers and employees.
If you love food and community and don’t know FareStart, you should. The organization provides culinary job training and placement for homeless and disadvantaged individuals, transforming the lives of nearly 6,000 people in the past 20 years. FareStart hosts a weekly Guest Chef Night on Thursdays, with the aim of serving an excellent meal to the community while raising revenue for its programs. Servers for the night are always volunteers—and to date, the event has raised more than $4 million to support FareStart’s job training and placement programs! Check out their site for more information.
Thanks to the incredible—and patient!—staff at FareStart for hosting our Board. We’ll be back next year!
