As part of the grand opening celebration, the Sprouts Healthy Communities Foundation is awarding $100,000 to the Community and School Garden Program at University of Arizona, which supports over 60 school gardens throughout Tucson. During the opening weekend, students from local elementary schools will be passing out free starter kale, Swiss chard and marigold plants that were grown at their schools’ greenhouse locations with help from Sprouts.
Additionally, through Sprouts’ Food Rescue program, the new store will donate groceries that are no longer fit for sale but remain perfectly edible and nutrient rich to Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona.
