Community Spirit

Since 1926, Nugget Markets has been committed to supporting local non-profits and causes in our community through donations, sponsorships, and participation in local and regional events. We also participate in Scrip and eScrip programs in the Sacramento and Marin County areas. To direct our involvement and giving, we focus on supporting non-profits and educational institutions that are located in our immediate communities. The primary causes that we focus on are:

Donations & Sponsorships

To request a donation or sponsorship/participation in an event, please download and complete the form, below. Completed form should be emailed to community@nuggetmarket.com, along with a written description of your organization’s mission, and an explanation of your event on your organization’s letterhead (if applicable). If your organization supports a community within five miles of a specific store, you may instead deliver your request to your local store director.

Please submit all requests at least 4 to 6 weeks prior to your event, and please note that only completed forms will be reviewed. Due to the high volume of requests, we are unable to support:

  • Individuals or teams
  • Political candidates or causes
  • For-profit and third-party organizations—we give directly to non-profits

Scrip Program

We are excited to partner with you in supporting non-profits and educational organizations in our community. We offer two Scrip Programs, based on where you live and shop:

Sacramento Valley Stores

Store Tours

A Nugget Markets store tour in progress

We love connecting with local schools and youth organizations through store tours, which are educational, interactive, and also free of charge! Tours include a visit to every department in our store, where kids get to see and learn behind-the-scenes secrets, like how our bakers make our artisan breads, how our in-house chefs prepare our pizzas, and how our butchers handcraft our sausage.

For more information or to schedule a tour, please contact your local Nugget Markets location.

    Store to Farm with California Safe Soil

    CSS began collecting food scraps from our West Sacramento store as a trial program in 2013. Soon after, our stores in Woodland and Davis joined in the program and started providing food scraps later that year. In early 2014, our Sacramento and Elk Grove stores started participating in the program, too.
