— According to the food and agriculture organization there are 821 million people struggling with hunger worldwide. Though more prevalent in developing countries, it is present even in wealthy nations. The United States Department of Agriculture reports that 40 million Americans struggle to feed themselves and their children sufficiently. These households have difficulty purchasing adequately nutritional food, eat less frequently, or may even skip meals entirely. To combat food insufficiency in her community, Cathryn Couch began preparing and delivering healthy, homegrown, organic vegetarian meals for those in need. Her effort blossomed into the Ceres Community Project in Californias Marin and Sonoma counties. Offering enlightening volunteering opportunities to youth and catering to low-income, or struggling households that dont qualify for other services, the Ceres Community Project is the beginning of a wave of kindness that is inspiring other communities throughout the country to follow suit.
