Summer, summer, summertime

June 3, 2019

As the summer approaches, we wanted to let you know about a few unique opportunities we have coming up.

Special volunteer opportunity

It is time for gleaning! The season of harvest is starting in June and July and there are great opportunities for families or a group of friends to get outside and help FareStart with our generously donated produce. We work with some amazing farms who donate leftover produce that we use in our community meals kitchen. Volunteers help pick the produce and get it ready for kitchen use. This is also the only volunteer opportunity that we have that is open to children. Send us an email at

Youth Interns need work-appropriate clothes

Youth and young people in our Youth Culinary Program intern at FareStart and MOD Pizza. Last year, they worked side by side with staff from MOD Pizza in their restaurants and every intern was hired on by MOD. Internships are exciting learning opportunities, but it also comes with a need for professional, work-appropriate clothes.

On our Amazon Wish List are Old Navy gift cards that we use to help our youth get those work-appropriate clothes. Please consider helping to provide them for this year’s group of young people.
