FareStart Steps Up to Feed More Community Members During COVID-crisis

FareStart’s emergency meal program delivers thousands of meals daily to more than 100 sites, including King County’s isolation and quarantine centers 

FareStart has been feeding King County’s most vulnerable community members since it was founded 30 years ago. Today they stand with us on the frontlines of the county’s COVID-19 response providing more prepared meals than ever to make sure people in our community impacted by COVID-19 or experiencing food insecurity don’t go hungry.  

This video shows how the team, led by CEO Angela Dunleavy-Stowell and chef Wayne Johnson, immediately pivoted to feed the increasing number of guests at King County’s homeless shelters, and COVID-19 isolation, quarantine and recovery centers. 

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, FareStart has provided more than 500,000 emergency meals to organizations across King County that serve youth, adults and families who are low income or experiencing homelessness. 

As the need for emergency meals continues during the pandemic, King County would like to thank everyone at FareStart for going above and beyond to feed our community right now, and for the last three decades.
