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.

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.
