Aldi has announced that it will be donating up to 400,000 meals to charities, community groups and food banks across the UK during the Easter holidays.

In a bid to fight food insecurity, the Aldi stores across the UK have used their partnership with Neighbourly, a community giving platform, to donate surplus food.

The discount supermarket has emphasised that “at least three quarters of the donations will go to causes that support children”.

“We understand that the school holidays can be an especially challenging time for families, particularly amid the current cost-of-living crisis,” said Liz Fox, Corporate Responsibility Director at Aldi UK.

“Neighbourly and the organisations they work with carry out such vital work in the community, so we’re proud to be able to support them in their efforts to help those who may be struggling.”

Also commenting on the donation, Steve Butterworth, CEO of Neighbourly, explained that he thinks the cost-of-living crisis has intensified, consequently “meaning that the demand on foodbanks is continuing to increase, particularly during the school holidays”.

“The donations from Aldi are a lifeline for many and provide the essential boost good causes need to continue supporting their local communities,” concluded Butterworth.
