Aldi to introduce in-store community donation points

Aldi is rolling out new community donation points in its UK stores as it looks to help people in need.

Due to start in October, the initiative follows the supermarket’s commitment to donate 10 million meals across the country in 2021 through a partnership with community giving platform Neighbourly.

Situated near packaging benches in-store, the donation boxes can be used to donate any food or household products, regardless of where they were purchased. To help guide customers, the supermarket has released a list of the items that are most in demand.

Donations will be distributed to local charities, foodbanks and community groups that are part of the surplus food donation scheme on selected days via Neighbourly.

Aldi has also donated over one million meals to charities, community groups and foodbanks over the school summer holidays.

Mary Dunn, managing director of corporate responsibility at Aldi UK, said: “This year, we are committed to donating more meals to those in need than ever before, and we know that our customers want to help too.

“This is why we are working with Neighbourly to extend our current donations scheme, making it easy for customers to donate food and essential supplies to those in need year-round.”
