Ceres Community Project
June 29, 2011
Last year I volunteered with Ceres and found to my absolute delight and awe a group of dedicated, heart-centered individuals. There is a spirit the permeates the people that I met at Ceres and the best that I can determine the source, I believe it is the combinaton of the youth in the kitchen and those within the community who are ill and need help. Then there is the addition of layers of community support from the organic farmers, excellent support from stores like Olivers to the "angels" who volunteer their time to deliver the food. What I also saw last year was the amount of time and energy involved in fund raising. It was a joy to work with the Ceres volunteers and staff and to sense that everyone involved seemed to benefit from it's existense.

I personally know two different recipients of the loving, nutrit ious food who had told me how grateful they were to not only have the food delivered for them but for their family as well, which resulted in them not feeling isolated at meal time.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Hard to say, I guess I would just wish that they would have the necessary funds to continue this really amazing work!
