Ceres Community Project

Mission Statement: We create health for people, communities and the planet through love, healing food and empowering the next generation.

Key Facets of their approach:

(1) Supporting individuals dealing with serious illness with free and low-cost, delivered and nutrient-rich prepared meals, nutrition education, and a community of caring.

(2) Involving young people as volunteer gardeners and chefs, giving them direct, hands-on experience of the difference that fresh, healthy foods and community make, and of their own capacity to contribute.

(3) Educating the broader community, including health professionals, about the connection between fresh, healthy food, strong social networks, healing and wellness.

(4) Connecting people of all ages and from all walks of life to one another, and to their value as an integral part of the community.
