  • 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 or reusable glass containers, 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.

  • FareStart
    The Three Faces of FareStart 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. Gourmet Lunch The restaurant’s main focus is lunch, which it serves Monday–Friday. The concise, sandwich-centric menu includes the acclaimed Field Roast sandwich, which features a hazelnut-crusted lentil and sage patty nestled between slices of vegan potato bread with mustard and vegan fig mayo. Entrees generally include soup, and FareStart devotees agree that the tomato-basil blend is not to be missed. Be sure to watch out for new specials and desserts, such as a bacon-chocolate-chip cookie, which pairs perfectly with a housemade espresso. Guest Chef Dinners Each Thursday night, Seattle’s finest chefs take over the FareStart kitchen for a one-of-a-kind prix fixe meal. In addition to supporting a good cause, guests can feel good knowing that they’ve tried one of USA Today’s 10 Best Foodie Spots in Seattle. Reservations usually fill up in advance, so plan ahead to catch your favorite chefs.
