Community Spotlight

Nugget Markets

Nugget is a family-owned business that has its roots in the Sacramento area. They’ve taken over the former Paradise Foods locations, and it has been a pleasure for several of our volunteers to pick up and deliver their very high quality food donations. Their generosity has been spread far and wide to many of our recipient organizations. Visit any of Nugget’s three locations—Novato, Corte Madera, and Tiburon—and check ‘em out!

Libby’s support has been absolutely invaluable with organizing, sorting and delivering the recent large food donations from the Nugget Markets. She has personally transported over 2200 lbs of food in just 3 weeks in a variety of food trips. And it’s such a delight to work with her! We are so fortunate to have her great energy and spirit on our team.

Gilead House

Gilead House provides transitional housing in Novato for homeless families for up to 12 months. In addition, they provide job skills training, financial management education, parenting coaching, and mentoring for their residents, with the goal of facilitating a successful transition to a stable life and permanent housing. We delivered a donation to Gilead this week and were so impressed by the facility and its warm, communal living spaces.
