Throughout the UK, Aldi will assist charities, neighbourhood associations, and food banks by providing up to 400,000 dinners to those in need over the Easter break.
Through its collaboration with community giving platform Neighbourly, the supermarket’s UK-wide stores have teamed up with regional charities, community organizations, and foodbanks to give excess food.
At least 75 percent of the donations will benefit organisations that help youth.
Since joining Neighbourly in 2019, Aldi has given over 30 million meals to charities and foodbanks.
“We understand that the school holidays can be an especially difficult time for families, particularly amid the current cost-of-living crisis,” said Liz Fox, Corporate Responsibility Director at Aldi UK.
We are honoured to be able to assist Neighbourly and the groups they partner with in their efforts to assist those who might be in need because they carry out such important work in the community.
“The impact of the cost-of-living crisis has intensified, meaning that the demand for foodbanks is continuing to increase, particularly during the school holidays,” said Steve Butterworth, CEO of Neighbourly.
The contributions from Aldi “provide the crucial boost good causes need to continue supporting their local communities and are a lifeline for many.”
