Hello and good evening everyone, I have a special write up this evening that I want to share with you guys. Recently I had the honor to cover an event in Seattle to celebrate the partnership between Farestart and the Jacques Pepin Foundation. About the Jacques Pepin Foundation: it’s a foundation that promotes Jacques passion and generosity for cooking and supporting individuals that created pathways to cooking. Thanks to the Flourish Event, and the gracious host, famous chef, Jacques Pepin, the flourish event was able to raise $270,000, of which went to the Farestart a great service that helps and teaches people in poverty get to a better path to living wage jobs, the money will also go to Apprenticeship program which will continue help people in need with their programs. Events like these really combine great food and good people to help with a cause everyone can get behind. Thanks to programs like Farestart, who have helped people, and transform lives for the past 25 years.
