Hunger Relief

At BJ’s, what we don’t sell, we share. Under BJ's Feeding Communities Program, BJ's Clubs donate millions of pounds of food each year — including fresh produce, baked goods, frozen meats and fish, and dairy — to help support 45 food banks in the 15 states BJ’s serves.


In addition to BJ’s Feeding Communities Program, BJ’s recent efforts to help alleviate hunger in the communities we serve include:

  • BJ’s Charitable Foundation Grants: Since the foundation's inception, $2,850,074 in grants has provided support to 363 local hunger-relief agencies and programs.
  • Check out last year's grant recipients here: 2014 Grant List.
