BJ’s Wholesale Club donates $100K to Maryland Food Bank

BJ’s Wholesale Club announced that a $100,000 donation from the BJ’s Charitable Foundation had been made to the Maryland Food Bank.

The Westborough, Mass.-based retailer’s donation will provide fresh and nutritious food to children across the region through the Maryland Food Bank’s Hunger-Free Summer Mobile and School Pantry programs.

“BJ's is committed to nourishing our communities and helping families thrive, and we're excited to support the Maryland Food Bank's Hunger-Free Summer Mobile and School Pantry Programs,” Kirk Saville, executive director of BJ's Charitable Foundation, said. “Hunger-relief programs are crucial for children and families who lose access to school lunches in the summer. Through our partnership with Feeding America, we're helping to provide access to fresh, healthy food to families when school is out for the summer.”

With the donation, the Maryland Food Bank will be able to increase the amount of food distributed during the summer club hours and School Pantry programs, to assure every child and family can take additional food home.

“Our child-focused feeding programs are critical during the summer months when children lose access to school meals,” Carmen Del Guercio, president and CEO of the Maryland Food Bank, said. “We're grateful to BJ's because this donation will allow us to increase the amount of healthy food we can distribute to children and families this summer.”
