“It’s an absolute thrill to partner with Nugget Markets for such a worthy cause,” says Clare Hasler-Lewis, executive director of the Robert Mondavi Institute for Wine and Food Science. “We can’t think of a better way to share and celebrate fabulous wine and food with our community.”
“We’re so excited to not only create and serve a delicious meal that incorporates local ingredients, but what a pleasure it is to support the Center for Land Based Learning and its commitment to education and local agriculture. It’s a great meal for a wonderful cause!”
“This is the first time Nugget has joined with Alaffia for a bike drive,” says Dave Welch, store director of Nugget Markets on Covell. “Our entire Nugget team is excited and ready for a day of community fun and partnership for a wonderful, global cause.”
“We’re delighted to host these amazing cheese makers and share not only wonderful samplings with our guests, but also to give our guests a 25% discount on sampled cheeses and the opportunity to help choose the next new cheese to appear in our stores," say Medbery.
“We have been looking for the right organics recycling program, and are happy to support the research being conducted by CSS and UC Davis. We encourage California farmers to join with us in testing this product on their cropland, to help create a truly sustainable program, returning unsold food to the soil to produce the next crop of locally grown fresh produce for Nugget to offer to its customers.”
Nugget Markets in Davis, Roseville, and El Dorado Hills will host special “Local Love Fair” events, with local producers, farmers, and vendors on-site sharing information and offering product samples throughout the store.
