Aldi has partnered with Neighbourly since 2019

Aldi is celebrating donating 30 million meals to good causes since launching its food donations initiative in 2019.

More than 4,000 good causes have benefited from Aldi’s partnership with food redistribution platform Neighbourly, according to the discounter. The partnership sees surplus food from Aldi’s 990 UK stores redistributed to local food banks and community groups.

Aldi also donated a £250,000 ‘emergency winter food bank fund’ to Neighbourly ahead of Christmas to help with increased demand on food banks.

“Hitting 30 million meals donated through our partnership with Neighbourly is an amazing achievement, with the initiative now more vital than ever for local community groups and charities who face soaring demand,” said Liz Fox, Aldi UK corporate responsibility director.

“We’re committed to doing all that we can to support people in the communities where we trade, and through our partnership with Neighbourly we have helped to make food more accessible for all.”

Neighbourly CEO Steve Butterworth said: “We’ve worked with Aldi for several years to help them further their support for those in need.

“The cost of living crisis is impacting communities up and down the country and we’ve seen the demand on food banks and local causes increase drastically since our partnership began.

“The support of the public and businesses like Aldi makes a huge difference. We know the donations have helped thousands of charities, community groups and families in need.”

Aldi has also recently extended its partnership with food redistribution group Company Shop Group. The partnership sees excess stock from Aldi’s network of regional distribution centres redistributed to community stores across the UK.
