With a $40 purchase you'll receive a FREE 1 lb. Bag of California Blend and with a $90 online purchase, you will receive BOTH the 1 lb. Bag of California Blend and a 1 lb. Bag of Chicken Gems.  A great meal in minutes. 

Ordering is easy!  Simply place your online order at marketday.com by April 24, 2015.  As always, every purchase you make gives back to our school. Your order will help us earn the $100 Apple Gift Card!
