First week of September – Back to school September 4th
With hungry kids going back to school, we make lots of cold cuts perfect for lunches including a few special treats to make the transition back to the classroom a little less painful! Pepperonis and other snacking sausages are a great source of protein that travels well and a good time saver when packing lunches!
