Nourishing Meals to Help You Heal

When you’re facing a serious illness, being well-nourished is very important. Ceres delivers meals designed to support you when your health and appetite are compromised.

Eating enough healthy food when you’re ill can help:

   • Reduce time spent in the hospital
• Increase the effectiveness of medications
• Improve overall quality of life

Food is Medicine

New American PlateOur meals follow the American
Institute of Cancer
Research’s
healthy plate format, with 2/3
of the plate consisting of
plant-based whole foods. This emphasis is also widely supported by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, the National Association of Nutrition Professionals, American Cancer Society, the Institute for Functional Medicine, The Center for Mind Body Medicine, The Block Center for Integrative Cancer Care and other institutes and physicians that have researched the relationship between food and health.

A Ceres meal is:

WHOLE when your appetite is compromised, every bite counts.
Our meals are delicious and nutrient-rich

ORGANIC healthier—and safer—for you, and for our planet

LOCAL the freshest foods, at their peak

LOW-GLYCEMIC to support healthy blood sugar levels

Our Client Team will talk with you about our services, how they might benefit you, and which of our programs you qualify for.

What Does It Cost?

Thanks to the generosity of our donors and volunteers, we can offer meals at a sliding scale price that is a lower price than prepared meals you might buy elsewhere. In fact, more than half of our clients receive meals free of charge. Our Client Team uses income-based guidelines to determine the cost for you.

How Long Does the Service Last?

We deliver for a minimum of eight weeks, up to a maximum of 24 weeks.

What’s in the Bag?

Each week, we deliver a bag of freshly-prepared meals to your door.
We can accommodate special dietary needs such as vegetarian and gluten-free. Each delivery consists of the following (per person):

• 4 complete entrees with side dishes, ready to be heated up and    enjoyed – a combination of poultry, fish and vegetarian entrees.
• 1 pint of soup
• 1 pint of salad
• 1 healthy dessert
