Aldi announces Emergency Winter Foodbank Fund

Aldi is to support local charities, foodbanks, and community groups this Christmas through its Emergency Winter Foodbank Fund.

The supermarket will be donating £250,000 to help organisations as they prepare for increased demand for their services.

Liz Fox, corporate responsibility director at Aldi UK, said: “We know that Christmas is already a particularly challenging time for many, but this year is understandably going to be even tougher for a lot of households.

“That’s why we’re more committed than ever to doing what we can to give back. We want to make food accessible for all and hope both our additional funding and donation drive will help to make a real difference.”

The fund builds on Aldi’s partnership with community engagement platform Neighbourly through which all of Aldi’s 980 UK stores can donate surplus food seven days a week, all year round.

Steve Butterworth, chief executive of Neighbourly, added: “The cost-of-living is impacting communities up and down the country and the charities we support are expecting to see demand increase even further over the coming months.

“Without the support of the public and businesses like Aldi we’d be unable to help those in need. Within our network there are many charities and community groups that will be able to put this funding to good use, to support families that are struggling.”
