Round up at the register & Apples for Gardens

January 2024

This month, you can round up at the register at our Grass Valley store to support Interfaith Food Ministry, and Gold Country Wildlife Rescue at our Auburn registers. Plus, we’re helping gardens grow for local schools with every pound of apples sold. This month, we’re supporting the gardens at Silver Springs High School and Ophir STEAM Academy.

Salad of mixed greens topped with croutons, strips of crunchy cooked pancetta, a poached egg and chopped chives. Big pepper grinder and knife/fork alongside. On a gray marble counter.

Eggs-elent Time for Salads

This salad is a sophisticated combo of flavors and textures, with a dressing that comes together with the piercing of the poached egg yolk. A great meal any time of day!
