Ceres Community Project
June 15, 2010
I volunteered my time and expertise as a photographer with the people at Ceres and I have to say that no organization has ever touched me and moved me the way this one has.
I knew very little about the organization when I first started. I was chatting with a friend, lamenting about how I wanted to volunteer my time for a good cause but the organizations I had contacted did not respond to me. She perked up and said she had the perfect project for me with the non-profit she worked for - the Ceres Community Project.
So I met with her one morning and we spent the day photographing the people who make this organization work - the hundred hands that make this vital community service possible. Every person, from the fish vendor at a local supermarket to the farmers growing the vegetables, from the teenagers learning how to cook nutritious and delicious food to the delivery people carrying the food off to the people who truly needed it, everyone was glowing in the knowledge that they were a part of an organization that was making a deep and true difference in the lives of many.
Ceres FEEDS the people - everyone who works with this company or who is touched by this company wins. Teenagers gain vital knowledge of healthy nutritious food and how to prepare it well. They take that knowledge with them when they leave their homes for college. People sick with cancer get to have a welcome relief knowing that they and their families will be well fed through this most trying time of their lives. Additionally, they are given access to meditation and cooking classes plus other resources that will ensure they get healthy and continue being healthy long past the end of their illness. As for the people like me, the ones who volunteer their time for this organization, we get the satisfaction of knowing we are touching peoples' lives and helping them when they need it most. All of this is possible through the work of this organization: the Ceres Community Project.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
My review mentioned it mostly but I have gained the desire to want to give more - more to this organization, more to other valuable non-profits, and more to my community.
How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
Volunteer & I am a photographer and followed the path of the food from the farmer to delivery and saw first hand how many people this organization touches.
