Jake's Western Grill | Lynden, WA

BBQ Done Right

Community Involvement

Giving back locally and globally has been part of our mission since opening the doors at Jake’s Western Grill in 2008 – it’s why we do what we do.

If you are a Lynden area nonprofit that would like to partner with our restaurant on a fundraising campaign, please review criteria and submit a request on this page.

We have been proud to contribute in these ways:

Hero Discount Program: 20% Off All Day, Every Day

Veterans and current members of the military, along with first responders, receive 20% off their meal every day at Jake's Western Grill. This offer is valid for dine-in or take-out. Simply show your military or first responder ID when ordering. May not be combined with other offers; excludes alcohol.

Lynden Christian and Evergreen Christian Schools: Tuition Reduction Incentive Program

Families from both the Lynden and Bellingham campuses of Lynden Christian Schools have a wonderful opportunity to bank tuition rebates through a program called "T.R.I.P." (Tuition Reduction Incentive Program). Jake’s sells gift certificates to the schools at a discounted price then the school passes on savings to student’s families in the form of tuition reductions.

Extended Hands: Mission Support in Honduras

This international ministry, based in Lynden, WA, helps other ministries and individuals reach out to those in need in Honduras. Jake’s Western Grill sponsors 5 children through the group each month. Members of the Poag family (owners of Jake’s) also travelled to Honduras in 2012 to support the efforts of this nonprofit.

Benefit Nights for Local Nonprofits

Benefit nights are a fun and easy way for Whatcom County nonprofits to raise money for their charitable organizations. On select nights, a portion of sales in the restaurant can be donated to local organizations. We even help with event promotion - it can be as easy as gathering your friends and family around a table for dinner! Participating groups have included: Lighthouse Mission, Relay for Life of North Whatcom, Camp Shiloh and Miss Whatcom County.

Gift Card Donations

It’s pretty simple around here – we give whenever we can! Over the years, Jake’s Western Grill has shared gift cards with nearly every local school, sports team, church, kid’s club, and business organization. If your group is having an auction or raffle, go ahead and email details to Brian at least 2 weeks before the event. We’ll do our best to help out.
