Ceres Community Project
June 21, 2010
My dear friend Pete found out he had lung cancer last October. I felt helpless and needed a way to use the surge of energy this news created in me. I signed up to be a "Delivery Angel" with The Ceres Project to deliver a weeks worth of food each week to the clients on Thursdays. The food is free for the first few weeks. The clients are amazed by this generosity and I believe this act of giving heals them as much as the nutritious and delicious food. I love doing this! As if that wasn't enough, the fact that teens are doing the cooking, preparing incredibly delicious, organic healthy food for folks with life threatening disease bridges so many issues that have been disconnected. The clients, volunteers and teens are learning the healing properties of food and we're all experiencing the healing power of working together as a community to help people in need. This is a very special organization and I'm honored to be a part of it.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
My friend Pete and his family received the food while he was ill. They raved about how delicious it was and how moved they were to receive such a gift. I bought the cookbook myself and use it weekly to cook for my family. It's also my favorite gift.
