Aldi to donate up to 400,000 meals to charities over the Easter holidays
Aldi is to donate almost 400,000 meals to people in need during the Easter school holidays.
As a founding member of Marcus Rashford’s Child Food Poverty Taskforce, the supermarket’s stores are working with local charities, community groups and foodbanks to donate surplus food.
Around 149 tonnes of food will be donated throughout the UK, with more than 250,000 meals going to causes that support families and children in need.
The move forms part of Aldi’s commitment to donate 10 million meals across the UK in 2021 in partnership with community giving platform Neighbourly.
Mary Dunn, managing director of corporate responsibility at Aldi UK, said: “We’re proud to support good causes across the country, helping them to provide meals to those in need over the Easter period.
“At a time when more people are experiencing financial hardship and food insecurity due to Covid-19, we are committed to doing what we can to donate more meals in 2021 than ever before.”
