My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Ceres Community Project, Sebastopol, CA, USA
I underwent a three-month course of chemotherapy a few months after a bilateral mastectomy. Ceres brought meals and snacks to my home, prepared with my condition and dietary needs in mind, and food for my vegan partner as well. Every single person at Ceres that interacted with me and my partner was exceptionally kind, caring, informed, and helpful. And when I realized that the food had been prepared after-school by teen volunteers who were interested in learning how to cook and eat healthily, I was nourished not only by the food but also by the concept and execution of this wonderful service. In addition to being a client served, I am also a donor and intend to become a volunteer for this remarkable service organization. I hope it will become a model for other communities to emulate and build upon -- it is much needed in every locality.

What, if any, change in your life has this group encouraged?
I was already quite aware of dietary issues related to life with cancer. Ceres reinforced my thinking and practice in this regard, and put me in touch with yet more resources and ideas. For others less aware, and for the teens that prepare the food, this service truly can be a huge eye-opener, with results that reach far beyond the 12 weeks that food is provided for free.
