Mercer Island-based Sandy Glass Mosaics organized and led 17 volunteers to serve meals at FareStart’s Guest Chef Night on March 15.

FareStart provides a 16-week training program to homeless men and women to learn skills in the food service business — and 90 percent get jobs within 90 days of graduation.

Volunteering that night were Sandy Glass, Suzanne Zahniser, Heidi Marr, Nancy Melendez Orantes, Sara Page, Heather Kahan, Jose Orantes, Sari Israel, Lisa Hankes, Heather Ramsayer, Kerry Mellor, Sari Groh, Leah Barsher, Sharon Perez, Leslie Meagley, Marcia Dare and Sandy Efseaff Benster.
