Aldi calls on Evesham and Pershore charities to sign up for surplus food donations this Christmas

Evesham Editorial 7th Nov, 2023   0

CHARITIES and community groups across Evesham and Pershore are being urged to register for a Christmas boost from discount supermarket giant on Aldi.

Aldi is calling on local charities, community groups and foodbanks in Worcestershire to sign up now to receive surplus food donations over the festive period.

In partnership with community giving platform Neighbourly, the supermarket’s UK stores partner with good causes across the country to donate surplus food year-round.

With all Aldi stores set to close on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day, the holiday season provides an opportunity for even more charities to benefit from the successful partnership.

Local charities will be paired with Aldi stores in Worcestershire this Christmas and can collect fresh and chilled food products nearing the end of their shelf-life – with the supermarket pledging to donate over a million meals over the Christmas period.

This month, Aldi hit its 40 million meals milestone since partnering with Neighbourly back in 2019.




Liz Fox, National Sustainability Director at Aldi UK, said: “We know that many communities up and down the country continue to feel the impact of the rise in living costs. That’s why we are committed to ensuring that the communities we provide for always get the support they need.

Steve Butterworth, Chief Executive Officer at Neighbourly, added: “Christmas can be a challenging time for some families, and we expect many more will depend on the services of local charities this year.
