We work with local food pantries and food banks to provide nourishing meals to those in need. According to Feeding America, every $1 donation allows partners to secure and distribute 10 meals to those in need.

Every month, leadership at each store location chooses a local nonprofit to be the default beneficiary from the Community Bag Program. This organization’s name is posted on the reusable bag rack during their benefiting month.
Community Bags are available at all Big Y locations. Look for them at registers and on the reusable bag rack. If you can’t find them, just ask a staff member where they are. They’ll be happy to show you!
To find the Big Y nearest to you, visit our site. You can also purchase these bags in bulk — they make great gifts for friends, family, colleagues and group members. Show them you care about them, the community and the environment! For information on bulk orders, please contact us at email@example.com.
