My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Ceres Community Project, Sebastopol, CA, USA
I could not have stumbled across a better organization to support if I had tried! There are plenty of programs that provide meals to those in need and are often bedbound, homebound or can't otherwise prepare nutritious meals for themselves. But Ceres is the first I've come to know as including teens in the active preparation of the meals, as well as help tend the garden that provides much of fresh produce incorporated into the meals. The teens gain valuable skills in both food prep and interpersonal relationships working in teams in the Ceres professional kitchen. They also earn necessary Community Service credit through their respective high schools. And to watch the teens work together on a common goal--and knowing how that experience will help mold the rest of their lives--is just amazing! This isn't a program for troubled teens (although some may be), but I would wish this opportunity for EVERY community where you just know this environment would go a long way in changing the course of many young lives!!
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
No changes, per se, just would wish Ceres all the success in raising the funds necessary to help other U.S. communities replicate the program! They've already worked with many, but there are many, many more waiting their turn, I'm sure!
