Here's what we're doing on Wednesday, October 15 to support this effort: donate 5% of our gross sales for the day to the Non-GMO Project; provide small tastings around the store of foods that are Non-GMO Verified; offer movie night, popcorn and a screening of the movie, GMO OMG. Movie begins at 7:30 p.m. and will be followed by lively discussion.

Our outdoor window now opens at 8 a.m. If you're out and about early in the day, stop by to see our daily breakfast selections to go.

We will continue to be on the cutting edge of our industry, bringing you new products and new information that will enable you to eat well and be healthy and happy.

|Calculating your ideal water intake|
Calculate how much water you should drink by dividing by two your weight in pounds. The resulting number is the ounces of water you need to consume daily. For example, if you weigh 150 pounds, you should drink 75 ounces of water daily. Eating water-rich foods, such as melons, celery, and soup broth, will also help keep you hydrated
