Teeing Off For Charity: Spring 2018 BBCF Tournament
LUFKIN, TEXAS — Playing with generous, open hands remains the mission of the fundraiser golf tournament hosted twice a year in support of the Brookshire Brothers Charitable Foundation. Vendors and employee partners gathered together Monday to golf and raise money for the BBCF, which distributes grants to regional non-profits every January. As it has been so for over a decade, the tournament was held at the scenic Crown Country Club in Lufkin. 
BBCF Golf Tournament Spring 2018
Due to weather delays, tournament play was partially shortened, however vendors continued to rally around the charitable cause. Representatives from some of the recipient organizations—Friends of Ellen Trout Zoo, Lufkin ISD Education Foundation, Junior Achievement of Angelina County, and more—volunteered their time to help work the tourney. It’s their way of getting to know and thank the vendor donors from across the state and nation. They also served as official witnesses on Hole 17, where if a golfer hit a hole-in-one, they took home a 2018 Toyota RAV4 courtesy of Loving Auto Group.
 BBCF Golf Tournament Spring 2018
This past February, the Brookshire Brothers Charitable Foundation awarded more than $100,000 in grants to 22 non-profits and 6 education foundations across its market. The grants give organizations the resources they need to continue living out their mission of serving those in need. Trustees and company executives presented funds to the recipients at the Ellen Trout Zoo in Lufkin, Texas.
BBCF Ceremony - Junior League of Lufkin
In making the presentations, Brookshire Brothers President, CEO and Charitable Foundation Board Member John Alston said, “Tens of thousands of lives are impacted by the good work these organizations do in their communities. They transform lives every day. It is our privilege, and that of our generous vendor partners, to help these non-profits live out their missions. It’s at the heart of who we are – a community grocer.”
BBCF Ceremony - Pregnancy Help Center of Lufkin
Since 2007, the Brookshire Brothers Charitable Foundation has given more than $1 million to non-profits that focus on responding to the needs in education, health/wellness, hunger, and the arts
BBCF Ceremony - Angelina Arts Alliance
The 2018 recipients are:
  • Alcohol and Drug Abuse Council of Deep East Texas (ADAC)
  • American Cancer Society
  • Angelina Arts Alliance
  • Boys & Girls Clubs of Deep East Texas
  • CRRC of Canyon Lake
  • Dublin Goodfellows

Make Your Own Beautiful Bouquet

• Step-By-Step Guide to DIY Flower Arrangements • 

Classic Mixed Flower ArrangementWhen people walk by my design area, they will often say, You make that look so easy, or, I wish I could do that. You should teach a class. I always tell them that there are simple designs you can do at home or in the office. It’s easy, plus you can start with any of the great selections in the floral department at your local Brookshire Brothers. We carry a variety of assorted blooms and premade seasonal bouquets, whether you’re looking for the latest general trend or something more particular. 
Additionally, we receive flowers on a weekly basis. Feel free to talk to someone in the floral department about which day they arrive so you can pick up the freshest blooms. In my 45+ years in the floral industry, the quality of our mixed bouquets, roses, blooming plants, and seasonal outdoor plants are a great value for the price.
Trim stems and add foliage
Once you’ve pick out your favorite flowers, you are DIY ready! First, open up your package and see how many stems in the bouquet that you can use. Usually, there is not much foliage so you might want to purchase a few extra stems of Leather Leaf, a fern-like foliage that will help hold the flowers in place. If you’re unsure what Leather Leaf is, your Brookshire Brothers florist will be happy to help.

Add the packet of floral preservative to a vase with fresh tap water and mix well. Slide your vase to the edge of the counter, and begin taking one stem at a time to measure how tall the tips of greenery should be from the rim of the vase. Start cutting your stems accordingly and add them to the vase in a circular pattern around the rim. When all the foliage is in, begin the same process with your flower stems. Make sure to leave some space between each flower head. The foliage helps support the flowers, which means the stems do not all need to touch the bottom, so long as all of them are under the water level. 
Choose Your Vase CarefullyWhen choosing your vase, focus on picking one with an opening that fits the size of your arrangement. In other words, avoid using vase with a mouth that’s too wide for a small amount of flowers. I actually find that an under-sized vase opening is somewhat better than an overly large vase where the flowers can get lost in the overall look.
Don't forget: Make Mother's Day extra special with flowers and this Puffed-Pancake Brunch Casserole recipe.
Remember, cutting stems is like cutting hair. If it’s too long, you can always take it out and trim it again. However, you can’t add stems back to the flowers when they’ve been cut too short. If you want the head of the flower to be at more of an angle, then you might need to cut it shorter so that it lays more closely to the edge of the vase. Once you’ve added all your stems, tweak it to your liking and then you’re done! Sit back and enjoy the view.

Mary's Mango Pico De Gallo

1/2 medium purple onion, diced
2 Roma tomatoes, diced
1 avocado, diced 
1 mango, diced
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
Lemon (Half or whole, depending on preference; lime can be substituted)
Jalapeños (Fresh or pickled, depending on preference)
Salt & Pepper to taste
    • Prepare your produce (chop/dice/etc) as needed. For pickled jalapeños, I used three small peppers. If you'd rather use a fresh jalapeño, be sure to scrape out all the seeds and white flesh in the middle (unless you like your pico de gallo extra spicy!). Also, feel free to use only half a jalapeño if you're not a huge fan of spicy (you can always add more later).
    • Combine all ingredients in a bowl. For the lemon, salt, and pepper, add according to taste.
    • Enjoy!

Krista's Chuy's Knockoff

16 oz sour cream - Consider substituting with plain Greek yogurt for a healthier version!
1 pkg. (1oz) Hidden Valley Ranch Dip Mix
2 whole large jalapeños, seeded
2 cloves of garlic, minced - If you're short on time, you can use a jar of minced garlic too!
1/3 cup of fresh cilantro
1 whole lime, juiced
2-4 tsp of milk
Tortilla Chips for serving!
    • Take the seeds out of the jalapeños.
    • Chop the jalapeños and cilantro (you don't have to worry about chopping these super fine; blending them in the food processor will do this for you)
    • Add jalapenos, cilantro, and garlic to blender. Use whichever setting necessary to chop/puree/ground these ingredients into small bits. You may have to pause the blender occasionally to scrape the sides.
    • Add 16 oz. of sour cream to the blender and blend.
    • Add your lime juice to the blender.
    • Pulse until creamy. 
    • Add milk slowly until you’ve reached your desired consistency. I added 2 tsp.
    • ENJOY!



Happy Earth Day 2018
In 1970, Senator Gaylord Nelson established Earth Day to garner national support and bring attention to the most pressing environmental issues. Since then, this day annually serves as a celebratory reminder of mankind’s mutualistic relationship with nature, along with its increased importance in our globalized world economy and the need for institutions to continually examine their environmental impact. Environmental concerns are one aspect of corporate social responsibility (CSR), an emerging business practice focused on sustainable contributions to society.
Get outdoors this Earth Day. Celebrate with our latest Fast Feast, perfect for backyard burgers!
The European conglomerate Unilever—whose brands include Axe, Dove, Lipton, Breyers, and Dollar Shave Club—is recognized as a global leader in corporate social responsibility.  According to CEO Paul Polman, his personal mission is “to galvanize our company to be an effective force for good.” The results speak for themselves: the company’s brands that were committed to sustainability grew 50% faster than the others, contributing to 60% of the Unilever’s growth in 2016.
Earth Day 2018
Like Unilever, Brookshire Brothers is committed to reducing its environmental footprint throughout its operations.  Company-wide, we salvage more than 11 million pounds of waste that would have otherwise ended up in a landfill, including cardboard, soft plastics, meat,deli, and producewastes.  As a grocer, we are the retailer for nature’s products, whether we’re selling Cheerios, oranges, or a strip steak. Thus, we have a responsibility—really, an obligation—to be good stewards of the resources we use and sell.
Read more: Take a look back at some of the contributions to our local communitiesin the last year.
This stewardship has led us to enroll in a program with Manomet called the Grocery Stewardship Certification. Using a point-based methodology in green practices and infrastructure, Manomet awards the certification from a weighted criteria covering areas such as food waste, efficient refrigerant, water usage, and recycling.  We currently have 16 stores working toward the GSC and with each store’s renovation, green practices and features are implemented.  We look to add more locations in the near future.
Follow us on FacebookInstagram, or Twitterto stay up to date with new developments!
We love being Your Community Grocer, and that includes the bigger community that we are all a part of beyond ourselves: our planet.  As we aim to lessen our impact on the natural world, we encourage you to do the same. Happy Earth Day!
