Updated COVID-19 Reminders – Masks are now optional for shoppers – We are still following recommended safety protocolsThe Pickens County community level has increased to MEDIUM. Based on the current CDC and SC DHEC guidelines, masks are optional for shoppers. Day managers will decide whethervolunteer workers will wear masks on their shifts. We are still following all of the recommended CDC guidelines and SC DHEC guidelines for keeping people safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, so we will reinstate the mask policy if the transmission rate increases again.
 We ask you to do the following:If you are feeling sick at all (fever or not), Please do not come into the store.If you know you have been exposed to COVID-19, DO NOT come into the store.  The CDC guidelines call for staying home for at least 5 days after you’ve been exposed to someone with confirmed COVID-19.  See this link for more information on what to do if you contract COVID:  What to Do If You Are Sick | CDC

Recipes and Health Articles Nutritional Yeast Dressing
       Total Time 5 minutes
    Servings 1cup

A mason jar filled with creamy nutritional yeast dressing.
1 cup nutritional yeast
⅓ cup extra-virgin olive oil*
⅓ cup + 1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar
¼ cup low-sodium tamari or soy sauce
3 cloves garlic, minced
pinch fine sea salt
ground pepper, to taste

Combine all dressing ingredients except olive oil into a blender. Blend until smooth and slowly add in the olive oil, with the blender on a low setting.I prefer making this dressing in a blender because it gets extra smooth and creamy, but if don’t have a blender you can easily make it by whisking all the ingredients together as well. Just make sure you mince your garlic really well.
