In February 2016, Ceres Community Project opened a program site in Santa Rosa located at the Social Advocates for Youth’s (SAY) new Dream Center.
Here youth learn to cook and eat healthy food, gain the skills to get
and keep that important first job, and discover their power to make a difference for someone in need.
• Healing Meals for Healthy Communities - youth served by SAY and youth from throughout the community are volunteering in Ceres’ commercial kitchen preparing meals that are delivered to clients and their families who are struggling because of a health crisis.
• Catering Program – a full service catering program to the Sonoma County community that includes job training and paid internships for youth.
• Ceres Café – serves organic, locally sourced foods consistent with Ceres’ food philosophy, and serves as a job training site for young people. Income from the café supports Ceres’ work to provide nourishing meals to community members facing a health crisis like cancer, healthy eating education, job training and leadership for young people.
