Ceres Community Project
June 15, 2010

A friend of mine received meals from Ceres Community Project when she was recovering from brain surgery. The meals were so incredible--creative combinations of ingredients thoughtfully prepared. I was so impressed I applied for a job with Ceres and learned much more about this remarkable organization. They engage young people from the community to prepare healthy meals, and other community volunteers to deliver the meals to people in the community who are homebound and with severe health needs. They partner with local farms to procure fresh organic foods. They teach people who have received their meals how to prepare the food and learn to eat more healthy meals. I didn't wind up getting the job but am so glad I applied and learned so much about this innovative and inspiring effort in our community.
