FareStart Lunch Program


Students have the option of signing up & purchasing the FareStart Hot Lunch program served Tuesdays and Thursdays at WSMS & WSA…

We encourage you to take advantage of this program that allows your child to enjoy a healthy, hot lunch every Tuesday & Thursday, while enjoying a break from the tedium of lunch packing.  Our meals feature a diverse menu that encourages students to try new foods as well as enjoy familiar favorites with a healthy twist.  If you are new to the school and unfamiliar with the organization FareStart, we encourage you to visit their website at www.farestart.org.  They are a wonderful community organization that is charting new ground in the fight to improve childhood nutrition—while most school meal providers use only processed food, FareStart prepares fresh, local, and seasonal food in their kitchen and is served up hot by four WSM-Mom volunteers.

FareStart is a culinary job training and placement program for homeless and disadvantaged individuals. Over the past 19 years, FareStart has provided opportunities for nearly 5,000 people to transform their lives, while also serving over 4.5 million meals to disadvantaged men, women, and children. Check our their website for more information: FareStart.org

FareStart was highlighted on an episode of Bizarre Foods (http://www.travelchannel.com/video/top-5-highlights-in-seattle). Take a Look!
