Local Action. National Vision.

FareStart transforms lives, disrupts poverty and nourishes communities through food, life skills and job training. Its Catalyst Kitchens initiative expands the mission across North America.

FareStart provides job training and support services people need for lasting employment.

Our restaurants, cafés, catering and contract meals provide great food for the community and transform lives.

The model is so effective we made a commitment to help build similar programs in other communities across the country.

Poverty Disruption

For nearly 30 years, FareStart has been breaking the cycle of poverty, homelessness and hunger.

A Shared Purpose

Catalyst Kitchens is not replicating the FareStart model. We are empowering those who share the FareStart philosophy. 

There's a Role for You

Join us in transforming lives one job, one person, one community at a time.
