Ceres

The Angel Island Company has partnered with Ceres Community Project Marin sponsoring their efforts to bring local teens into the kitchen, connecting them to healthy food knowledge and real cooking skills and giving them a chance to learn and give back to their larger community. The teens are mentored by a professional chef creating thousands of healthy nourishing meals that are then delivered free of charge to families in Marin dealing with serious illnesses such as cancer. $1 of every purchase of the Classic Sandwich on our café menu is donated to Ceres Community Project. Look for the sandwich on our menu board!

Ceres Community Project empowers teens to grow and prepare healing, organic meals that are delivered to families and individuals facing a health crisis like cancer. Each year, hundreds of teen and adult volunteers support members of our community with meals specifically designed to support their healing process, and tools to help them improve their eating habits for the long term. Founded in 2007 in Sebastopol, CA, Ceres has delivered more than 400,000 meals and supported thousands of teens with mentoring plus cooking, nutrition, work-ready and leadership skills. Ceres operates kitchens in San Rafael and Sebastopol, and will add two new program sites in early 2016, in Santa Rosa and Alameda.
