My seven year old son and I deliver food twice a month for the Ceres Community Project. The organization is very well organized and makes an enormous contribution in our community. I feel so fortunate to have found this inspirational group of dedicated people who created such a gift to our community. From the people who receive the healthful food prepared by teenagers learning to cook and learning about the value of helping others, to those of us who deliver the meals, we are all made to feel like we are important and make a difference. Because of the Ceres Community Project I have the opportunity to teach my son that we all need to think of others, give back and take care of people, even ones we do not know. In response to his frequent question "why do we have to do this?" I ask him "would you rather be receiving the food, or delivering?" He knows that the people receiving the food are very ill and he is quick with his response that delivering is better than receiving. We appreciate having the opportunity to do a tiny thing within our community to help others in need and to support the inspired work done by the Ceres Community Project
