Our Local Heroes

We extend our gratitude to the local heroes - the health care workers, the first responders, and our very own employees – who make it possible for us to continue to support and protect our loved ones during this uncertain time.


With regional food banks experiencing unprecedented demand, Big Y World Class Market (Big Y) is providing an additional $125,000 in support to address the rise in food insecurity. With the donations made in March 2020, Big Y has provided $250,000 in financial assistance to area food banks in addition to the healthy surplus food it provides to them on a weekly basis. Using the estimate that every dollar donated provides four meals, the Big Y financial assistance amounts to 1 million meals.

“Our goal, our mission, is to feed families,” explained Charlie D’Amour, President and CEO of Big Y. “We have people in our communities that are really struggling to get food on their table. The role of food banks serving local neighborhoods has never been more important.”
