Volunteer

Our work depends on people like you offering their time and talent.

Sign up as a FareStart volunteer.


Although COVID-19 has limited in-person volunteering opportunities, we are grateful for the continued support of many of our volunteers throughout the crisis. Volunteers have lent a hand in a variety of ways, including delivering meals to graduates, making masks, conducting virtual mock interviews and writing notes to meal recipients.

Your contribution has a ripple effect

Volunteers take on a lot at FareStart, allowing us to put as many of our resources as possible toward transforming lives. 

Every dollar of revenue from our restaurants, cafes and catered events is rolled back into programs. 

Every hour of service FareStart volunteers provide makes our programs stronger and enriches the FareStart community.

Every grant allows us to build capacity and explore new ways we can make a difference.
