About Our Classes & Nutrition Programs

Ceres offers a wide variety of classes to support you in making the connection between your health and the food and lifestyle factors that influence it. Currently, we have a variety of terrific online classes available. Post-pandemic, we will return to teaching in-person at our program sites, local health care clinics, and Sonoma and Marin County library branches. New classes are added on a quarterly basis, so please bookmark our calendar or follow us on Facebook.
