In honor of Earth Day, April 22, Lucky supermarkets has donated 100 tons of compost to Bay Area school and community gardens. The supermarket makes high-quality compost from fresh waste produced in its stores, which is hauled to a production facility in the Central Valley. The compost will go to Burnett Middle School in San Jose, Oakland Unified's Castlemont High School, Collective Roots in East Palo Alto, the Contra Costa Master Gardeners community garden in Walnut Creek and Sacramento High School in support of school and community gardening projects to improve nutrition and alleviate hunger.

Lucky has also offered 20 tons of compost to school and community gardens in San Francisco. The compost will be available at the Daly City Lucky store on April 13 starting at 11 a.m.

Lucky is headquartered in Modesto and is a division of Save Mart Supermarkets.
