Community Spirit


Thank you for reaching out to Fork Lift. In accordance with the State of California’s four stage plan, we are suspending all community involvement until July 31, 2020. We will continue to monitor both State and County mandates/recommendations in an effort to keep the spread of COVID-19 at bay. We will also continue to focus our efforts on serving our guests and supporting our associates in a safe and healthy manner.

All submitted in-kind donation requests, as well as sponsorship and event requests will be reviewed in chronological order beginning August 3, 2020. We are grateful for your patience and understanding. At this time, Nugget Markets is actively supporting a multitude of COVID Relief Funds, most specifically related to our food insecure populations.

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, 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

Community Scrip Program

We’re excited to partner with you in supporting local nonprofits and youth educational organizations through our Community Scrip Program.

To get started as a participant:

  • Obtain a community scrip card from the beneficiary organization you’d like to support or at the guest service desk of your local Nugget Markets.
  • Visit our Participants page to register your community scrip card.
  • Shop at Nugget Markets, present your registered community scrip card prior to each transaction and earn up to 4% of your monthly purchases for your chosen schools or nonprofits.

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.
