  • Farestart
    The Three Faces of FareStart Cafe Cuisine with a Cause FareStart began in 1992, when founder David Lee realized that homeless people needed more than just food. His innovative job-training program has changed the lives of nearly 7,000 disadvantaged individuals so far. After men, women, and teens complete free food-service training—which includes life-skills training and individual case management—they can take advantage of job-placement services. Graduates of the program boast a 90% employment rate, with some even ending up at the FareStart restaurant on Virginia Street. During their training, students get on-the-job experience at FareStart Cafe. Café Favorites for Breakfast and Lunch Beginning at 7:30 a.m. Monday–Friday, the FareStart cooks start churning out quiches, breakfast sandwiches, and fresh bagels. Lunch, which stretches into early evening hours Monday–Thursday, features hot and cold sandwiches, such as a grilled-zucchini sandwich with hummus or a chicken-curry-salad sandwich topped with dried cranberries and a spring mix. Support Baristas-in-Training Designed specifically for homeless and disadvantaged youths, the FareStart Barista Training & Education Program opens up a vital career path for teens. The espresso machines at the café are manned by trainees in this program, who brew lattes, americanos, and cappuccinos for caffeine-hungry customers. Pro tip: if you bring your own cup, you’ll get a steep discount on a double-shot of espresso or a drip coffee.

  • Eat Local
    Eat Local’s chefs create locally-sourced meals from scratch, and teach cooking students how to do the same. Every item on the menu is handmade using west coast ingredients: grass-fed meats, free-range chickens, and organic or sustainably-grown local produce. The staff places food items in biodegradable packaging, and, for cooked meals, freezes them to maintain flavor and quality. Eat Local Frozen Meals can be bought in-store or shipped to individual doorsteps or rabbit holes. Those jonesing to make their own edibles can enroll in classes that guide the creation of pasta, pies, and even marshmallows.
