Aldi donates over 9,000 meals to families across Buckinghamshire

Over the summer holidays, Aldi worked with local charities to donate 9,356 meals to people in need.

Aldi, which has supermarkets dotted all around Milton Keynes, paired up with local charities, community groups and foodbanks to donate surplus food.

The majority of meals donated went to causes supporting families and children.

It is all part of the supermarket's commitment to provide 10 million meals across the country in 2021, in partnership with community giving platform Neighbourly.

Over six million meals have been donated to good causes so far.

Mary Dunn, managing director of corporate responsibility at Aldi UK, said: “We were proud to support so many incredible causes in Buckinghamshire this summer, helping them to donate meals to those in need.

“The school holidays can be a hard time for families, particularly when many are experiencing heightened financial hardship due to the pandemic, and this is why we committed to donating more meals than ever before.”

Steve Butterworth, from Neighbourly, added: “The summer school holidays are always one of the busiest times for the nation’s charities and food banks, but this year things were even busier. Aldi’s donations have never been more of a vital support to these organisations.”
