Salute to summer! Welcome to the summer 2018 edition of Friends and Family. We had a busy spring! Our annual support of the MS Society Walks happened in Victoria and Duncan on May 27 and we’re looking forward to hearing the amount raised! We also participated in many parades in May and June, including Esquimalt Buccaneer Days, Nanaimo Heritage Days, The Island Farms Victoria Day Parade, Lake Days and Honeymoon Bay Days. Thanks to the PETER CAVIN, DIRECTOR, team and our COUNTRY GROCER amazing float designer David Gray for all their hard work! We also started some renovations in our Esquimalt and Royal Oak stores and completed one in our Chase River store. We hope you like the changes! This July also marks our fifth annual cross promotion with the Cycle of Life Tour to benefit hospices on the Island. We have five team members riding this year: Dave from our warehouse, Jeff from Royal Oak, Beth from Human Resources, Serena from Cobble Hill, and Karen from Chase River, who is riding with her husband and brother-in-law (read more about them on page 12). If you want to help out, look for participating products in-store from July 6 to 19. Partial proceeds from each product sold will go directly to the Cycle of Life Tour. Thank you to our many suppliers who are donating funds. And a big thanks to Chef Michael Williams for making the riders a delicious dinner on Salt Spring after the first day! From our family to yours, we hope you have a safe, happy and enjoyable summer!

What are some of your favourite Friends & Family covers? Here are a few of ours, beginning with our very first, featuring Chef Michael Williams.
Celebrating 5 years of Friends & Family
Happy birthday to us! JENNIFER BLYTH
It’s been an amazing five years for Country Grocer’s Friends & Family Magazine, and we’re thrilled you’ve come along for the ride! We’ve covered a lot of ground over 20 issues. From our inaugural cover – we’re looking at As a special you, Chef Mike! – to those treat, we have revisited profiling local growers and some of our favourite producers, we’ve strived to interviews from the last five showcase much of what years with videographer makes Vancouver Island Wes Holmes from Flavr Shop. the wonderful place it is Watch Facebook.com/ to live, explore, grow and do business! countrygrocer and our YouTube As we reflect on the last channel to celebrate five years, we’ve been fortuwith us! nate to meet so many amazing people ... here’s a look back at some of our favourite stories!
A part of our community
As an Island-grown, family-owned and operated company, Country Grocer is deeply committed to the communities it works in, and Vancouver Island as a whole. As such, it forges strong

connections with everyone from youth sports teams to larger organizations, like the MS Society. Each issue, we profile the much-needed work these organizations are doing in your community, and how you can help, get involved or learn more. Some of our favourite stories have profiled the invaluable work of local non-profit organizations Country Grocer has connected with over the years, especially those relating to families: the David Foster Foundation, raising the awareness about the need for organ donors as it supports families of children needing transplants; Help Fill a Dream, which provides support for families Chef Michael Williams, with of children facing life-threatening Evanne and Coen, transplant illness; Headway, supporting Island recipients helped by the families living with epilepsy and David Foster Foundation Parkinson’s disease; the Vancouver Island Prostate Centre, supporting Men’s Health Day every September; and of course, the Cycle of Life, benefitting Island hospice care (read more about that on page 12!)
Local supporting local
about those four-legged friends we share our homes with.
As an Island company, one of Country Grocer’s founding philosophies is to support local growers and producers. From the veggies on your plate to the yogurt in your fridge to the soil and flowers in your garden, Vancouver Island is blessed with an abundance of quality, local foods and products. One of the joys of Friends & Family has been sharing the diversity of work undertaken right here ... from the family sheep farm on Salt Spring Island to innovative products like last issue’s look at the expanding world of microgreens, grown and harvested in Yellowpoint! Beyond what we think of as “traditional farming,” there’s so much more: we’ve visited artisan cheesemakers crafting awardwinning cheeses using milk from Island cows and buffalo; we met farmers raising turkeys, pigs and water buffalo with a focus on sustainability; and we’ve learned about some amazing health and wellness products produced right here. Yes, farmers and producers are busy here on Vancouver Island. Sharing their stories – the people behind the products – has been a remarkable opportunity.
From our family to yours, thank you for reading, and as always, if you have an idea for a story, we’d love to hear it!
Friends & Family covers have depicted the seasons, the Country Grocer family and some of the many amazing non-profits we’ve worked with over the years (see a small selection on the previous page!).

Caroline’s Cart makes shopping easier for families When a family has a child with special needs or mobility difficulties, simple tasks like grocery shopping can be overwhelming. It’s an experience Country Grocer Cobble Hill baker Serena Leblond knows and understands. Serena’s sons have rare chromosome disorders, and in connecting with other families in similar situations, she learned about Caroline’s Cart, an innovative shopping cart that makes a big difference. “A seemingly small task, like grocery shopping, can be a big, difficult production if you have a less-than-mobile loved one,” Serena explains. “Caroline’s Cart is well-known in the special needs community and a godsend to families. In fact, many people have said there is no way they can go shopping without one. “There is a huge need, and we want to
Thanks to Cobble Hill Country Grocer’s Serena Leblond, left, with husband Allen and sons Bryson and Ryllie, Caroline’s Cart should be arriving in the store this summer. help people enjoy getting out into their local grocery stores and being part of their community. At Country Grocer, everyone should feel like family!” Caroline’s Cart, from Technibilt, gives caregivers a viable option to transport someone with special needs through a store while shopping, without the impossible task of having to manoeuvre a wheelchair and a traditional shopping cart at the same time. It should be arriving
in the Cobble Hill store early this summer. With a 250-pound weight limit, Caroline’s Cart also works for adults who can no longer shop on their own, but enjoy getting out to the store with a friend, loved one or caregiver, Serena says. “This cart will have a huge impact on people who really need it, and I can’t wait to see our local special needs families come out and enjoy their shopping experience,” Serena says.

Country Grocer’s new seafood expert, Al Blackford.
Lighten up the grill with these go-to options from the seafood case
JENNIFER BLYTH While steaks and burgers tend to take centre stage during summer barbecue season, from health benefits to flavour profile, there are a lot of reasons to show seafood a little love. And who better to give us his grill gotos than Country Grocer’s new seafood expert, Al Blackford. Al, who joined Country Grocer earlier this spring, has spent his 40-year career in seafood, as a fisherman on both coasts, then behind the scenes working in wholesale and commodities, and building fish plants on the coast. “I came out to B.C. for a holiday and never left,” he says with a laugh. For busy summer nights, seafood offers not only a healthy choice, but also a protein that’s quick and simple to prepare. Simply add a garden-fresh salad and dinner’s on your plate in minutes!
With its solid, meaty texture, halibut is always a good choice for the grill, says Al, who prefers to keep the cooking simple: leave the skin on, then place skin-side down on the grill, and top with lemon, salt and pepper, and a sprinkle of dry dill. Because halibut isn’t as fatty as some other fish, it’s important not to over cook. Al recommends removing it from the heat when it flakes, but still looks a little wet inside. As you let the halibut rest, it will continue to cook. Pink salmon is another summer favourite, whose milder flavour is nice stuffed with shrimp, crab and onion, or topped with mayonnaise or Greek yogurt to help retain moisture. As a rule of thumb, grill for about 7 to 10 minutes for a fillet. And by not turning the fish, when it’s done you can remove the meat but the skin should stay on the grill!
“When you take the fish off the grill, the skin stays behind,” Al says. While local spot prawns are wonderful in season, that season is short, so for summer, Al likes grilling up Argentinian prawns for a treat. Leave them in the shell and skewer them, grilling until the meat turns opaque. Serve with a little garlic butter. With clams and mussels, before cooking, discard any that don’t close when you tap the shells. Steam in a little white wine or chicken broth, then serve with the sauce. Discard any that don’t open after cooking. While you’re browsing the seafood case at your Country Grocer, you might also notice some yummy salmon patties, now fresh-made in-house from Al’s own recipe and perfect to throw on the grill just as they are. Pick up a few salads from the deli and a delicious summer dinner is as easy as that!

CYCLE OF LIFE
Karen Hartley with husband and fellow Country Grocer Spinner Brian and brother-in-law Allan Hess.
Power to the pedal Country Grocer family shows how coming together for a common cause can make a big difference JENNIFER BLYTH
“When someone shares their story it hits close to home. It makes your heart swell.” – Karen Hartley
A little pedal power can make a big difference. The two-day Cycle of Life is an annual fundraiser for Island hospice care. Not only is Country Grocer a sponsor, but it has a team participating every year. Founded by Victoria’s Graham Robertson and now hosted by the Victoria Hospice on behalf of local hospices on Vancouver Island, the 200-kilometre route tours through the beautiful Saanich Inlet, Cowichan Valley and Salt Spring Island. Since 2011, Cycle of Life has raised over $497,000 for Island hospice care. This year, Bowen Road Country Grocer bookkeeper Karen Hartley is making it a true family affair, riding

with her husband Brian and brother-in-law Allan Hess. Karen and Brian first rode in the event in 2015 – the “coldest July ever,” with rain, wind and cold – but despite that, would have returned sooner if schedules
had allowed, Karen says. The two avid cyclists return to the event this year with their new co-fundraiser along for the ride. “It’s a great event, we love to bike ride and we know that Hospice has an amazing program,” Karen says. “It’s such a great cause that if we had been able to ride those other years, we would have!” Spending 24 years in the close-knit Salt Spring community, “we know what it takes to run these things, and what it means for families who are receiving hospice

care,” Karen says. “You experience it first-hand.” After the first day of cycling, riders camp overnight on Salt Spring Island where Chef Michael Williams cooks up a delicious dinner for all. A speaker will often inspire the participants and volunteers with the impact of their efforts. “It’s the camaraderie of it – you feel that – and when someone shares their story it hits close to home. It makes your heart swell,” Karen reflects. For the Hartleys, a recent New Zealand vacation allowed for some extra training over winter, “and we try to get in a few longer rides before the event,” Karen says, noting their biggest focus now is on the fundraising. Coming up is a bike spin and barbecue at the Chase River Country Grocer June 15, with hot dogs by donation. Supporters can also contribute to the Country Grocer Spinners and other riders online at cycleoflifetour.ca “We’re trying to get the word out as much as possible.”
• Hospice care provides endof-life care focused on palliative treatment. Hospice services across the Island rely heavily on community donations and events like the Cycle of Life Tour to continue providing care and comfort for dying patients and their families. • Vancouver Island hospices reach over 12,000 patients and families each year. Staff and volunteers work to address the needs of the bereaved as well as those of the dying, offering emotional, psychological or spiritual support using a variety of programs geared to all age groups.
Graham Robertson, here with partner Beth Turner, received the Sovereign’s Medal for Volunteers from Canada’s Governor General for his work with the Cycle of Life
• Every donation, no matter how small or large, is effective and gratefully appreciated. Your gift will help fund programs and services such as:
- Counselling sessions to help friends and family cope with loss and bereavement; - Child-specific counselling sessions to help young children cope with the death of a parent, as well as to support parents in supporting their children in a time of grief; - Physical and recreational therapies for patients to improve their quality of life; - Specific end-of-life care training for volunteers and medical staff; - Specialized mattresses to provide the best comfort possible for patients who have lost their mobility; - Advanced medical equipment that allows patients to safely selfadminister medications that relieve their pain; - Transportation and equipment costs for patients to receive in-home care, and avoid difficult emergency room visits; - Information packages to help guide families providing in-home care to a loved one.

RECIPES from Chef Michael
Yam Latkes Servings: 2 Preparation Time: 20 minutes Cooking Time: 10 minutes This is a variation on a Jewish classic. Using the yams instead of potatoes makes for a beautiful presentation and it tastes amazing as well. Give it try and see for yourself! Ingredients: 2 eggs 2 tablespoons white flour ½ of a regular sized yam ¼ of an onion 3 or 4 cloves garlic Salt, fresh ground pepper and cumin seed Garnish: Green onion, sliced thin Plain Greek yogurt Bacon Method: 1. Whisk the eggs and flour together in a mixing bowl. 2. Grab the cheese grater and shred the yam and onion on the large holes. Now for an important step…squeeze the liquid out of the shredded veggies using your hands. 3. Once you have sufficiently squeezed, add the shredded yam and onion to the mixing bowl along with the garlic, salt, pepper and cumin seed. 4. Stir very well until incorporated. 5. Preheat a large cast iron or stainless steel pan on medium heat. Drizzle a bit of oil and a knob of butter into the pan and then place a spoonful of the latke mix into the pan and flatten and shape into a small thin disc. Repeat to fill the pan. 6. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes and then flip and fry for another 4 to 5 minutes. You want them browned nicely on both sides. 7. Serve right away and if you want to turn it into a nice dish, garnish with a dollop of plain yogurt, bacon and green onion. Variations: • Turn it back into the classic latke by substituting the yam with russet potatoes and otherwise follow the recipe step by step.
The Ultimate Breakfast Sandwich Servings: 1 Preparation Time: 20 minutes Cooking Time: 10 minutes After tasting this creation, I wondered why anyone would want to go out for breakfast if they knew how to make this sandwich. It’s awesome and a perfect Sunday brunch kind of go-to. Ingredients: Country Grocer breakfast scone, bacon cheddar Avocado, sliced Tomato, sliced thin Red onion, sliced very thin Tannadice Farms bacon, cooked crispy Cage-free egg, fried over-easy Little Qualicum Raclette Mayo Hot sauce Method: 1. Cut the scone in half horizontally so that it can begin receiving all these amazing ingredients. 2. Next, I like to apply the avocado and red onion on the bottom half of the scone. 3. Heat a medium or large fry pan on medium heat. Add the bacon and cook on both sides until it’s just how you like it. 4. If there’s enough room in the pan you can cook your eggs at the same time, otherwise you can wait until the bacon is cooked. Make sure the pan is clean enough for your eggs, giving it a quick clean if necessary. You can reserve the bacon fat to cook your eggs in though! I really like over-easy eggs for my breakfast sandwiches – they are messy, but delicious – but cook the egg how you like it. 5. Place the cooked egg on top of the avocado and onion. Top with the cooked bacon, cheese and tomato. 6. Spread a generous portion of mayo on the top of the scone and then apply as much hot sauce as desired. 7. Time to get messy and enjoy!
Tandoori Chicken Wrap Servings: 2 Preparation Time: 25 minutes Cooking Time: 25 minutes Sometimes just one amazing product is all it takes to create a delicious meal. Well, this wrap has two! The Salt Spring Tandoori Chutney and the Little Qualicum raclette make this wrap amazing with very little effort! Ingredients: 1 chicken breast, salt, pepper, turmeric and paprika 12-inch whole wheat tortillas Little Qualicum raclette cheese, sliced For the slaw: ½ head green cabbage, sliced thin ½ head red cabbage, sliced thin 2 large carrots, shredded ¼ cup toasted pumpkin seeds ½ cup mayonnaise ¼ cup Salt Spring tandoori chutney Juice and zest of 1 lime Salt and pepper to taste Method: 1. Drizzle the chicken breast with a little oil and then liberally season with salt, pepper, turmeric and paprika. Bake in a 420°F oven until cooked through, about 18 to 25 minutes. 2. Cool the chicken breast and then slice very thin against the grain. Set aside. 3. Mix all of the ingredients for the slaw in a mixing bowl and stir to combine. 4. Now let’s build the wraps. Lay out as many wraps as you’re going to make on a clean work surface. 5. Add sliced cheese first, then layer the chicken on top and finally add a liberal amount of slaw. 6. Carefully fold over the ends and then roll the wrap from bottom up to the top. Make sure to get it as tight as you can without tearing the tortilla. 7. Now preheat a large fry pan on medium high heat. Add a little oil and a pad of butter. Once the butter is melted place the wraps, folded side down into the pan and brown on all sides. 8. Serve warm and enjoy. Variations: • This wrap would still be good without the tandoori chutney, but not nearly as amazing…so you could save some money if you had to.

CHEF MICHAEL WILLIAMS
What does 5 years of healthy eating look like? (Hint: Eat your veggies!) Five years now we have been producing our quarterly magazine and I have covered a good many ideas and concepts in my articles. In honour of the fifth anniversary, I’ve been asked to reflect on some of the ideas I have touched on over the past years, and in going through my articles I am feeling a bit of pride. I have shared the importance of filling your freezer and how that can have a profound impact on how successful you will be at maintaining a healthy food intake. There are many times when life is simply too busy to cook every meal from scratch, so when you barely have time to breathe you can still find a tasty and nutritious home-cooked meal from your stock in the freezer. I also wrote about campsite cooking. The key to success there is having lots of prep done ahead of time – chopped veggies, pre-made salads and slaws, hummus or other dips and veggies – not to mention having some homemade soups or stews ready to go in the cooler and bringing them frozen to help keep the cooler cool until they’re defrosted and ready to eat. Another good one for me was packing healthy and nutritious lunches when you’re out for the day. Things like skipping the pop and juice, including healthy nuts and seeds, incorporating lots of fruit and veggies, making sure to incorporate
a serving of protein and utilizing leftover dinners for quick lunches. One of my favourites was the article I wrote on oatmeal and how instant oats are not doing as much for you as you think. Instead I shared how and why you may want to switch to steel-cut or at least large-flake oats if you want to get the most nutrition out of your porridge. Something I have hit on again and again in my career is boosting your veggie intake. Because most of us can do a better job of getting more veggies in our diets, I have written several articles using creative ways to help you achieve this. I strive to have at least 50 per cent of my plate filled with veggies and to a lesser extent, fruit. Some of the things I have done over the years in an effort to coax more veggies into your meals include sharing ideas for freezer meals like veggie-loaded soups and stews, and sneaking veggies into pasta-heavy dishes. Better yet, make veggie “noodles” and skip the pasta all together! Having big batches of coleslaw or mixed but undressed green salads in the fridge at the ready is another great strategy. I have also connected eating more veggies to another article I wrote on going gluten-free. I suggested that I often try to eat gluten-free, not because it’s fashionable or because I have an allergy, but

in an effort to boost my veggie intake. When you can take processed foods and replace them with whole foods and veggies, you’re doing yourself and your body a favour. I also wrote an article on “Winter Salads.” Guess what my intention was there…to get you to eat more vegetables! Oh wait, wasn’t there an entire article on squash and how to cook it? What is squash again? Is it a vegetable? Yes, I think it is. See the theme here? I just want you to be the best you, the healthiest you that you can be. All in all, I have been working to be the healthiest and best me I can be and I have shared some of my strategies that I found helpful in hopes that it may help you. I really do want you to be healthy and successful, and naturally as a chef, I want you to enjoy your food. So come back to countrygrocer.com often and see the new creations I have been working on and enjoy cooking!

$10,000 COMMUNITY SCHOLARSHIPS: FUTURE-PROOF YOUR CHILDREN FOR MORE THAN A CENTURY, Glenlyon Norfolk School (GNS) has been a proud member of the Victoria community. During that time, we have partnered with families to educate generations of young men and women, equipping them with the skills required to find success in university, in their careers and in their lives, while at the same time making many positive differences in the world. The GNS Community Scholarship initiative is designed to ensure that this tradition continues. These $10,000 awards, renewed annually for a student’s time at the school, are specifically intended for senior school-aged students in Greater Victoria, making our unique, engaging educational experience accessible to enthusiastic, well-rounded young minds. In exchange, each recipient is encouraged to fully embrace the

opportunities we offer in academics, the arts, athletics and citizenship. At GNS, our uniquely designed and delivered approach to the International Baccalaureate (IB) curricula enables students to learn world-class, higher level skills in inquiry, analysis and innovation. Inspired by compassionate, committed and expert teachers, students develop into effective communicators, able to adapt to change while also influencing the direction of change as disrupters themselves. They grow as caring, engaged citizens with strong character, and they gain a better understanding of who they are and how they can positively impact their communities and the world. They learn that “doing good” is just as important as “doing well.” Our well-rounded approach to education extends far beyond the traditional classroom setting. Students learn the importance of a healthy lifestyle through our athletics and outdoor education programs, guided by committed coaches who value teamwork, strong individual effort and participation every bit as much as skill acquisition. Meanwhile, our Fine Arts teachers inspire the development of talents and passions, encouraging students to push beyond their comfort zones, with results that are truly remarkable. At GNS, we understand that change is a constant. The rapid pace of advances in technology make it imperative that we prepare students for careers that

very likely do not even exist today. Fortunately, the GNS version of IB education ensures each student learns to welcome opportunities to grow and develop throughout their lives. This year’s Community Scholarship is bigger and better than ever. If a student in your family is entering Grade 8, 9, 10, 11 or 12, we want to hear from you!

NUTRITION NOTES WITH PENELOPE GRIGGS
PROBIOTICS AND PREBIOTICS:
LOVE YOUR GUT! Probiotic supplements play a key role in rebalancing gut flora. By maintaining a healthy gut flora, we support the immune system, mood and wellfunctioning digestive system. Probiotics can increase digestive regularity, relieve diarrhea, alleviate symptoms of IBS such as gas and bloating, and promote digestive health especially after taking antibiotics. In addition to the good work they do in your gut, probiotics work to support the skin barrier. Skin issues including eczema, acne, dry skin, dull skin and premature aging can be reduced with the support of a good probiotic supplement. Probiotics generally fall into one of two groups: Lactobacillus, which populates the small intestine, and Bifidobacterium, which populates the large intestine. Although live cultures die over time, probiotic supplements are tested to ensure they maintain potency beyond their expiration date, regardless if they’re shelf-stable or meant to be refrigerated. In other words, a probiotic billed as containing 50 billion CFU (colony-forming units) might leave
the laboratory with 200 billion CFUs, some of which are expected to die off over time. So, while refrigeration slows down the loss of live cultures, shelf-stable probiotics have enough cultures to stay alive until well past the expiration date. These products also offer the convenience for travel and those of us who tend to forget about supplements stored in the fridge! Fermented foods like yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, and kimchi contain lots of probiotics, but it’s hard to know exactly how much. If a person needs a therapeutic strength of probiotic to achieve their desired outcome, taking a supplement allows for a more standardized and reliable way to get the right amount. While eating probiotic-rich foods is a beneficial way to get an extra boost of good gut bacteria, picking the right probiotic supplement – a clinically-tested proven formula including multiple strains – ensures you’re getting the maximum benefits. Prebiotics are a type of indigestible dietary fibre that promotes the growth of healthy microorganisms. Many probiotic supplements include prebiotic fructoligosaccharides (FOS)
to support the longevity of the encapsulated probiotic strains. Food sources of prebiotics include inulin from chicory root, bananas, asparagus, onion, garlic, artichokes and legumes. A diet rich in plant-based foods, resistant starches and both soluble and insoluble fibers will provide most of the prebiotics a person would need. When a food source contains both prebiotics and probiotics, the combination is called a synbiotic. Foods that are synbiotic include cheese, kefir, and certain types of yogurt. While probiotics are generally safe to consume, be aware that some have some uncomfortable side effects as the body adjusts. Depending on the state of your gut, you may experience temporary gas and bloating during the period of adjustment while the probiotics are recolonizing your gut. As always, speak with your doctor to make sure probiotics are right for you. Once you have determined that a probiotic is suitable, visit our friendly Nutrition Advisors available at all Country Grocer locations to determine the best product for your particular needs. Penelope Griggs works in the nutrition department at Country Grocer’s Cobble Hill store.

Pork on the grill: What you need to know! Thick-cut pork cuts can be a tasty addition to your summer grilling line-up. From pork tenderloin – always delicious! – to hearty sausages and chops, you’ll find a wide variety of barbecueworthy choices in your Country Grocer meat case. To ensure you’re getting the best from your go-to grills, the folks at verifiedcanadianpork. com offer the following guidelines: Thick-cut chops and steaks (3/4” to 1” thick) should be grilled on medium-high heat for 11 to 12 minutes, turning once, to an internal temperature of 160°F or 71°C. For a whole pork tenderloin (1.5 to 2lb/680 to 900g) grill for about 25 to 30 minutes over medium heat. For sausage (about 100g each), turn the heat down to low and allow about 20 to 25 minutes.
Country Grocer family members on the move Country Grocer welcomed two new store managers this spring. After starting in 2002 in Lake Cowichan, Tory Dillabough moved to Chase River, before becoming grocery manager at Bowen Road in 2012. “It’s a company that truly makes you feel like family,” says the new store manager at Bowen Road. “I see Nanaimo as a city with so much growth and opportunity, and I am very excited to be part of this great company and what the future holds for it.” In Cobble Hill, Jeff Oud is the new store manager after 20 years with the Country Grocer family. Congrats!

Country Kudos Beth Harris, Human Resources Manager for the South Island Country Grocer stores, is fortunate to work with many exceptional team members, many who work behind the scenes and out of the public eye. Their efforts are just as essential to the smooth-running stores customers love! • “My computer crashed my first week back from holidays. Mark Showers helped me through the troubleshooting. When I needed a new computer, he helped me through the process of setting everything up on my new one. He was very patient and made the process a lot easier. I know he is super-busy so appreciated him taking the time to help me.” • “I have seen Tammy Averill go above and beyond numerous times, doing things to benefit the company and team members. From power washing the outdoor break area to cleaning out the office fridge to running out to purchase a new vacuum – she has done it all. She’s always willing to help, even if she’s busy with what she needs to do for marketing.” If you’ve received outstanding customer service, share your story on our Employee Recognition form and submit your Kudos in-store or online at countrygrocer.com
