Mission Statement

FareStart transforms lives, disrupts poverty and nourishes communities through food, life skills and job training. FareStart is a non-profit, 501-C3 organization.

Description

WHO WE ARE

FareStart has been helping people transform their lives through food for 30 years - one person, one job and one community at a time.

People experiencing poverty struggle to escape the cycle they are in and often face other compounding barriers to getting and keeping a job. At FareStart, we help people overcome barriers by teaching work and life skills needed to succeed in employment and in life. By investing in people, providing meals and building community, we transform homelessness, hunger and poverty into human potential.
