Fare Start

While in Seattle we went to this amazing restaurant! It is called Fare Start. It is a place that takes homeless people, houses them, and trains them in culinary arts, then helps them find a job in the food industry. They have a 97 percent job placement rate. Not only are they feeding the homeless, they are creating REAL solutions. I love it. All the wait staff was volunteer so not only was tab going to a good cause, so was the tip. Great idea huh? The night we were there, they were having graduation of four students. They were so grateful for their opportunity and we appreciative that someone was willing to take a chance on them despite previous bad choices made in their lives. There needs to be a a Fare Start in every city in America? Who wants to start one with me?
