ORGANIZATION: Ceres Community Project

Rob and Teens

Ceres Community Project is looking for adult volunteers who are passionate about cooking and working with youth.
Preferred experience: teaching young adults; commercial kitchen work and whole food cooking. Positive attitude and ability to remain calm under pressure is essential. If you love to cook, enjoy mentoring teens and want to give some of your precious time to a heart centered organization, Ceres may be for you!
Part of our mission is involving young people as volunteer gardeners and chefs, giving them direct, hands-on experience working in a professional kitchen growing and cooking fresh, organic foods. We see young people as intelligent, responsible, capable, creative and caring, and must be central participants in shaping our collective future. If this speaks to you, then this may be the perfect place to donate your precious time and talents!
Kitchen hours are from 3:00pm until 6:30pm on Monday through Thursday year round. We ask that you have a keen interest in mentoring teens.

Ceres Community Project provides nourishing organic meals lovingly prepared by local teens and adult volunteers for people with serious illness like cancer.
Volunteering at Ceres is a fun, rewarding and safe way to make sure those who are too ill to shop and cook for themselves are nourished and feel cared for.

Mission Statement

What We Do: Ceres Community Project provides healing meals lovingly prepared by local teens and volunteer adult kitchen mentors for people with serious illnesses, including cancer. Ceres creates health for people, communities and the planet. Ceres has three program sites serving Marin and Sonoma counties. Who We Are: At Ceres Community Project, our goal is to restore whole foods to their place as the primary foundation for long-term health, and to build the networks of relationship among all members of our community that support happier and healthier lives. What We Do:Food as MedicineTeen EmpowermentCommunity EducationNational Education


Ceres Community Project began in a church kitchen in March 2007 with a simple idea: teach teens about cooking and eating healthy food by having them serve as volunteer chefs preparing nourishing meals for people dealing with cancer. Over the past 14 years we've learned that the benefits for both teens and the clients they cook for are profound and long-lasting. Today, Ceres operates two kitchens in Sonoma County and one third in neighboring Marin, all in California. Ceres mission is to build healthy communities by restoring whole, local and organic food to its place as the foundation of health, and by creating heart-centered ways for people to connect themselves, others and the earth.
