A weekly highlight for the FareStart community is Thursday Guest Chef Night, held at the FareStart Restaurant at 7th & Virginia. For FareStart students, it is a unique opportunity to work with Seattle's premier chefs. For FareStart supporters, it's a great opportunity to enjoy an excellent meal, introduce new supporters to the organization, or volunteer. Since 1994, Guest Chef Night has raised more than $4.5 million, revenue which has gone directly back into our program to support our student job training and placement services.
Guest Chef Night Program
Every Thursday night, a different Guest Chef works with the students to prepare a three-course meal at the FareStart Restaurant. Guest Chef Night has been called "Seattle's best food lover’s event," and for just $29.95 it's one of the city’s best values. Community volunteers serve our guests who enjoy great food in support of FareStart and our students.
A very special part of the evening is our student graduation. FareStart’s culinary training is based on a rolling 16-week schedule and each week we have an average of 3 students graduate. At 7 p.m., we introduce these students and celebrate their accomplishments.
Guest Chef Night is open to the public and reservations are strongly suggested. Please note: due to the short graduation ceremony, reservations at 7:00 and 7:15 p.m. are not available. For last minute requests, please call (206) 267-7601 to check for availability.
