Unity of Santa Rosa’s 3rd Quarter Community Abundance Recipient

CERES:  Distributing Meals that Nourish the Critically Ill and Empowering Teens
Young adults volunteer as chefs and gardeners. They learn:
– to cook – and enjoy – healthy meals from scratch
– skills for success at work
– teamwork and leadership
– values: compassion, kindness
At Ceres, youth are the primary chefs cooking organic nutritious meals for community members who face serious illness. Each week clients receive a bag of prepared meals that can last 4-5 days and support them and their whole family while they are in a health crisis. Youth work alongside adult mentors, and are supported to grow and give their very best.
Unity of Santa Rosa commends this amazing community organization.Thank you CERES!
