Updates at The Cheese Board

To Our Dear Customers and Community,

 

After careful consideration, we will be increasing our prices starting July 1, 2022.

 

It’s a story we’re hearing on repeat these days: the cost of running a business is going up. For months now, we’ve been seeing steep increases in what we pay for ingredients, packaging, and other necessities.

 

Raising our prices allows us to sustain our business for the long-term so that we can continue to bring you high-quality food at a fair price.

 

As always, thank you for your continued support and understanding. We wouldn’t be here without you.

Join us on Sunday 4/10 to Support Trans Youth

Please join us on Sunday, April 10, 2022 at our fundraising event for Out Youth and Equality Texas.

 

The healthcare rights of trans youth in Texas are being directly targeted by legislation that denies them gender-affirming care and criminalizes anyone who provides it.

 

We support trans and queer youths’ autonomy over their bodies and for their caregivers to do their jobs of caring for them.

 

Help us support Equality Texas, which is working to fight this legislation through political action, education, community organizing, and collaboration, and Out Youth, which promotes the physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and social well being of sexual and gender minority youth so that they can openly and safely explore and affirm their identities.

 

The pizza will be house made tomato sauce with mozzarella, Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, and fresh basil.  The salad will be organic beet and carrot, toasted almond, and buttermilk herb dressing.  We’ll have green sauce, drinks, and a special rainbow cookie available as well!  All of the labor is voluntary, and 100% of what we sell that day will be donated.

 

Thanks to our friends at Golden Rule Organics and Dan’s Farmers Market in Alameda for their generous donations of produce.

 

We are aiming to make pizza until 2 pm but in the past have run out of pizza early. We will do our best to keep the pizza flowing!

 

See you there!

 

***Update!***

Thank you for coming out and helping us raise $7780.35 for the cause!

The cheese is made in Berkeley, by a vegan deli called The Butcher’s Son. We hope you will support this new local, small business as well: thebutchersveganson.com

We have partially baked pizzas available at both the bakery and the pizzeria. You can finish them off in your oven at home to enjoy fresh, hot pizza at your convenience.  We have gluten-free friendly and vegan versions available as well, while supplies last.

HEATING INSTRUCTIONS: Heat oven to 400°F. When oven is fully heated, take the pizza out of the box and place it directly on the rack. Heat for 5-8 minutes. If the pizza comes with a sauce or salad on the side add it after the pizza is done. Enjoy!
