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, for fourteen weeks with healthy food, made with love to lessen side effects and increase positive treatment outcomes.
Thank you so much for all the delicious food that you made for us! I can’t tell you how much we appreciate you cooking for us and others. What you are doing is so important and such a huge help to families and individuals who are going through tough times. You should all be very proud of what you are doing! Keep up the great work!
With love & appreciation…– Client Family

Thank you so much all of you for all you do in the Healing Meals program. Not only was it a big help to not have to make 4 meals, but it was great to know that what we were eating was HEALTHY! The Immune Broth became my morning “tea.” So whether you plan, shop, prepare, assemble, or deliver, THANK YOU! You are a God-Send!– 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
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
With thanks for your emotional and nutritional nourishment during this trying time, we appreciate your kindness and generosity and we are excited about the birth or your organization.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for the delicious food. xoxo– Client & Family
Thank you so much for delivering the healthy broth. It has helped me in my recovery. The broth is delicious and the spirit is speeding my recovery. I think I would like one more – Thanks so much.
Thank you for the meals. I especially like the Frittata this week and I am a huge fan of soups! Have a good week.– Client
My thank you seems small compared to all you’ve done with my journey. Providing healing meals and the notes has done more for my healing than I could have ever imagined! My thank you comes from my heart. Your kind gesture will last a lifetime.– Client
I love the way my heart feels when I leave.– Teen Volunteer
Healing Meals was a gift from the heavens, to have healthy meals sitting in my refrigerator was the best thing that you could possibly even imagine. It was just wonderful.– Client Family Member
