Welcome to Ceres, so much more than a meal

Love these people and all they do.

Ceres’ commitment is to use foods that are the healthiest for the person as well as for the planet. These healthy foods are fresh, organic, nourishing, nutrient-rich, seasonal, minimally processed, grown sustainably, and local whenever possible.Statement

We build healthy communities by restoring fresh, whole and organic food to its place as the foundation of health, and by connecting people in heart-centered ways to themselves, others and the earth.

Key facets of there approach include:

♥ Supporting individuals dealing with serious illness with free, delivered and nutrient-rich prepared meals, nutrition education, and a community of caring.

♥ 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.

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

♥ 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.

Downtown Streets Team

WHY WE’RE DIFFERENT

We believe that to effectively address homelessness we need compassionate and innovative leadership, paired with collaboration among social service agencies, government agencies, individual communities, and the private sector. By educating individuals we can change perceptions of the homeless and low-income people living in our communities. As one of our Team Members has said, what we’re doing is a “win-win-win” scenario: the Team Member wins, the environment wins and the community wins – it doesn’t get much better than that.

Through our Award-Winning Work-First Model, we provide homeless and low-income men and women with the resources they need to rebuild their lives. First, they volunteer on one of our teams and begin working collaboratively on beautification projects. In return, they receive a stipend in gift cards to help cover their basic needs, while taking advantage of our case management and employment services to find housing and a job. Our ultimate goal is to find our Team Members employment because having a job restores hope and opens the door to countless opportunities. Our model is structured to be a one-year transitional program into permanent housing and employment. In short, our vision is to end homelessness by restoring the dignity and rebuilding the lives of unhoused men and women. Through volunteering on one of our teams, men and women are prepared for permanent employment and housing.

There’s a great need for provision for the poor. Though many organizations generously offer assistance, their pantries are often stocked with sub-par food that most of us wouldn’t buy for our own tables. We’re convicted that we’re called to do better.

Jesus said God is inviting us to a banquet. The Crossroads Bible Church downtown outreach tries to reflect that in some small way by offering those in need hearty, healthy sandwiches, generous with fresh ingredients.

People in need are often given no choice about what they’re served, so we offer a variety: turkey hummus, turkey Dijon, ham apple hummus, ham and pineapple, and veggie. Sandwiches are layered with spinach, tomatoes, cucumbers, and mushrooms served on multi-grain bread. Hummus — usually made in our own kitchen — is offered as a reprieve from peanut butter, the food pantry staple for vegetarians.

As we distribute the sandwiches, Bibles, water, and hygiene kits, we aim to make each exchange singular and offer genuine care. We know that God set the standard for loving one another, and it’s a privilege to reflect that to our guests.
