Ceres Community Project
June 15, 2010

Ceres saved my life. I truly believe that. They helped me to cope with my breast cancer, by helping me to understand that people care. They gave me hope and GREAT food. The Ceres Foundation is a wonderful group of teens and adults that make great organic food for Cancer patients and bring it into their home. The food tasted great,even though my taste buds were off. I felt like I was being cured by eating the broth and immune balls. And the people who visited me were kind and understanding. When I felt lonely they were there to talk me thru and give me hope. One of the amazing things about the group is that the food they bring is not just for the cancer patient but for the whole family. My husband and I had it the whole time of my chemo and radiation but then when my daughter came to stay and help out they provided food for her also. At Christmas time they knitted me a cap for my bald head and gave me a beautiful present of herbs and tinctures and lavender! Oh I LOVE lavender! After my therapies I took a low cost class with JoEllen and learned how to make the food myself. The weekend was very therapeutic with discussions and Qigong and great people. I can't thank the Ceres people enough for their great food and support. It's one of the most worthwhile organizations around.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The knowledge of new foods that help your immune system be healthy. Great recipes that make you want to eat vegetables and grains in all kinds of new and improved ways. And in finding caring people who are sensitive to your needs.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make desserts that have more fruit in them. The chocolate cake was too dry. Picky, I know. But over all the FOOD WAS JUST WONDERFUL!

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the caring, generous, sensitive people who were involved in making and delivering the great food

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

just the very best. See above comment.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

really help a lot of Cancer patients. And since Cancer is on the rise it could really really do some great deeds.

Ways to make it better...

Can't think of anything. My experience was totally awesome!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Getting more money. Fund raising.If I win the lottery I'm donating a big portion to the Ceres Project.

One thing I'd also say is that...

the food is so terrific, tasty and body and mind healing.

Ceres saved my life. I was diagnosed with breast cancer and was getting chemo and radiation treatments. I was tired and unable to think enough to plan good food menus for myself and my husband. Ceres brought food to my house for myself and my husband and then my daughter when she was staying with us for part of the time. The food was DELICIOUS! Organic, tasty, with every bite making us feel more and more healthy and loved. At Christmas time they brought us a personally knitted cap, for my bald head, and organic herbal sprays and teas. They gave us wonderful recipes that help build my immune system. And extra foods to help make me strong like sauerkraut and vitality balls and teas. The volunteers are wonderful people that come and talk with you when you are lonely and are concerned and caring people. The food preparers put so much love into the wonderful meals that you feel cared for and loved. Then when I was finished with my treatments we took a class with the lady who started the program and learned how to prepare the meals for ourselves. It is a wonderful group of people!
