NOURISHING OUR COMMUNITY & EMPOWERING TOMORROW'S LEADERS
Working alongside adult mentors to prepare, cook and package nutrient dense meals youth learn soft skills (such as good communication), technical skills (cooking) as well as a strong understanding that food can be medicine.
Adult volunteers can harvest produce from the organic garden, prep food, cook, package and deliver healing meals to those in a health crisis; the experience is transformational for everyone involved.
Our Organic Meals Program supports individuals dealing with a health crisis, and their families, with healthy food, made with love to lessen side effects and increase positive treatment outcomes.
It has been such a gift!– Client
I know that if we were not getting these meals delivered we would be reaching for a frozen pizza or a bagel with peanut butter.– Client
The immune broth is great. Even with mouth sores, I can still drink it and I know I am getting good nutrition and it does not hurt my mouth.– Client
Thank you so much to all of the kids that cooked my meals. They were so delicious and really helped me get ready for my surgery this week. Thank you also to everyone who organized and delivered the meals. I’ll be in touch when I get out of the hospital.

You can’t always tell that someone is sick, and you really have to be caring for everyone, no matter what. You need to be treating everyone with kindness and decency because you don’t know what they are going through.– S. Treaux, Teen Volunteer
As a mother, it is such a relief to know that my family is being fed well even when I do not feel up to cooking. It is one less thing I need to think about.– Client
