BJ's asks members to help feed needy families


NATICK, Mass. In celebration of its 25th anniversary, BJ's Wholesale Club announced that it is challenging the communities in which it has clubs to collect 25 tons of groceries to help feed local families in need. In turn, BJ's Charitable Foundation will donate the financial equivalent of one million meals to Feeding America's Food Bank network partners located in the communities BJ's serves.

From Oct. 23 through Nov. 8, BJ's is asking the community for donations that can be placed in the "25-Ton Challenge" bins located at its Clubs .

"We are grateful that BJ's Wholesale Club is using its 25th anniversary as an opportunity to help provide meals for families in need," said Vicki Escarra, president and CEO of Feeding America. "The last year has been particularly challenging, with the need for food assistance increasing 30 percent across the country, and even more in some areas. The 25 tons of donated food from BJ's community members, along with the one million meals, made possible by their monetary donation, will go a long way to putting food in bellies of hungry families."
