5 Things: October 6, 2020
1. Sound Bites Home Delivery
With the impending challenges of COVID-19, Cedar Grove and Sound Sustainable Farms saw a way to continue to support local restaurants by creating a contactless delivery program to ensure PNW residents can still support their favorite restaurants and relish in their delicious dishes.
Sound Bites was launched to deliver frozen options to consumers that include specific instructions from each partner restaurant on how best to thaw, season, and cook their signature dishes. Meals are available from restaurants such as Duke's Seafood, Wild Ginger, El Gaucho, Macrina Bakery, and more.
