#CookForAChange Challenge + Giveaway
1 CHANGE + 1 HASHTAG = 1 MEAL
We want cooking to inspire personal change – and social good. For each use of #CookForAChange, Simply Organic will donate one meal to the Ceres Community Project Healing Meals Program. Our goal is to provide 1,200 organic meals* to critically ill patients during the holiday season! Together, we can help many.
The Healing Meals Program connects low-income people struggling with serious health challenges to local teens who want to help. Youth volunteers from ages 14 and up prepare meals for the critically ill, working in the Ceres’ food production garden and cooking in the three commercial kitchen sites in Marin and Sonoma counties in California. The organization also trains affiliates across the United States to replicate their model. Learn more about the Ceres Community Project and donate.
