    A total of 494 schools participated in the chain's fundraising effort, which awarded them $1 for every $20 spent at a local Fresh & Easy store.

    EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- Kindergarten through eighth grade schools in California, Nevada and Arizona raised $131,145 through Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market’s"Shop for Schools" program.

    In all, 86 schools in Arizona, 322 in California and 86 in Nevada participated in the pilot program. In addition to the money raised by each school, the top-performing school in each state received an additional $5,000 from Fresh & Easy.
