Hi I’m Michael Moody and these are my daughters Cristiana and Alessandra. I started working at Oliver’s 15 years ago as a dishwasher while I was attending Sonoma State University. Over the years I grew with the company and I’ve managed the Natural Foods Departments for several years now.
I wear many hats in our company. I manage our reusable bag program which has saved thousands of paper and plastic bags from reaching our landfills. I coordinate our quarterly Family Values Flyer that features hundreds of items at everyday prices that can’t be beat. I’ve even been a delegate for Oliver’s and have met with our State Legislators to help pass laws that protect our food supply. Overall I feel that Oliver’s allows me to be a part of the solution to our planet’s problems.
Offering our customers Natural Foods at great prices is something I’m very, very passionate about. When people choose to buy Natural and Organic Foods they are saving our precious planet from the harmful effects of pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, chemical fertilizers, growth hormones, and antibiotics. Buying organic products also protects the biodiversity of our planet and shields us from the unknown effects of genetically modified organisms.
As a parent it’s also important that Oliver’s be able to offer affordable, nutritious snacks and quick meals for those of us on the go. Amy’s, Clif Kids, Cascadian Frozen Fruits and Veggies, and Clover Organic Milk are just some of the items we use in our home. And of course we only use local eggs from Rock Island for our morning Egg Burritos.
But most importantly working at Oliver’s is fun—I really have a great time here. Our staff and customers always put a smile on my face. Tom and Steve are great people to work for, and it’s their generosity and vision that has contributed to the success of Oliver’s. I can be outspoken at times, but in this company we’re encouraged to be ourselves and speaking truth to power is a part of who I am.
Real Food. Real People. It’s the truth.
