We are committed to supporting and contributing to the diverse community we live in. One of the ways we do this is by offering jobs to people with disabilities through a Marin County group called Integrated Community Services (ICS). We also provide financial and product contributions to Sebastopol-based Ceres Community Project, a wonderful organization that empowers teens to provide meals that nourish individuals and families facing health issues. Their two kitchens manned by teens provide healthy organic foods to the community.
ICS works to provide employment, housing and social services for persons with disabilities. By our association with them, we affirm our commitment to improving the quality of life for disabled persons. We share the belief with ICS that businesses can substantively help people with disabilities achieve independent lives by providing jobs in an encouraging and supportive environment.
Ceres Community Project works to build healthy communities by restoring locally-grown organic whole food to its place as the foundation of health. Healthy food can create heart-centered ways for people to connect. Toward these ends, Ceres is our partner as we donate a portion of tea box sales to support their efforts. We also contribute teabags to accompany the meals that Ceres provides to those struggling with serious illnesses. Ceres is a partnership we believe in and we applaud their good work!
