Dear Friend, 

I’m writing to share some of the gratitude we’ve been receiving from our community over the past two weeks. Our Client Care Coordinator, Elisa, says she receives consistent responses from both the general public, and referral sources alike about Ceres right now:  

"There is an overwhelming feeling of gratitude towards Ceres during these difficult times, when we are still there, bravely, ready to help.  They express being moved by our dedication to the ones who are in most need - the sick, the elder, the poor - especially when I explain we are not only continuing to provide meals without interruption but rather increased the amount of food we offer. It is in those moments that I realize how lucky I am to have the privilege to be part of this organization." 

With the support from our donors, we’ll begin delivering additional meals and groceries to our clients who need them next week.  And we’re poised to dramatically increase the number of new clients we serve.  Already this week, we’ve delivered over 500 emergency meals to a senior community whose residents are in quarantine due to an infection. 

We've made great strides together, and thank our donors and volunteers for helping Ceres meet this crisis.  However, we know our work is not finished.  Help us continue to meet the evolving challenges Covid-19 presents.  Right now, our generous friends at Redwood Credit Union will match your gift, up to a total of $15,000. You have the power to do double the good for our clients. Together, we can care for those who need us most. Donate now.

How We're Adjusting Operations 

Food safety is always a top concern at Ceres, and we will continue to evaluate and modify our protocols per the latest guidance from county health departments and the CDC as the impacts of Covid-19 unfold.  We’ve reduced the number of people preparing food in our kitchens to minimize the risk of infection. To make more meals with less people and increase efficiency, we’ve...
  • Hired more chefs
  • Temporarily suspended our Youth Development Program
  • Temporarily consolidated cooking in Sonoma County to our Sebastopol kitchen
