Chef Ryan is passionate about sharing food and cooking techniques, and we first met when I was writing for the Pike’s Place Market newspaper. He had founded the Community Kitchens at the Pike Place Senior Center, and I wrote an article about his mission for the classes. We bonded at Seattle Coffee Works talking about food security and what chefs can do about it. After several years growing the Community Kitchens, Ryan eventually found a great fit for his mission at the FareStart program, one that focuses on providing practical skills training to disadvantaged men and women to help them change their lives. Hear how FareStart makes a difference in the Seattle community and his passion for the new Teen program.
