Sprouts Farmers Market

Sprouts’ new San Rafael store joins over 200 Sprouts Farmers Markets in 12 states across the country, all with fresh, natural and organic food at great prices. Their motto: “It’s healthy living for less.” Last week Sprouts donated 500 pounds of chicken, the largest amount of protein that we have ever received!

Teresa S.

Teresa joined ExtraFood a few months ago but almost immediately jumped in to “own” a regular trip. That’s a pre-scheduled trip that happens the same day and timerange every week. Everyone would love to pick up Comforts’ great food each week and deliver it to the seniors at Bennett House but you’d have to arm-wrestle that trip away from Teresa! She also does a bi-monthly regular trip from Bon Appétit Management Company to Rotary Valley Senior Village. And on top of all that, she just reached the 50-trip milestone! We feel lucky to have Teresa on our team.
