CHARITIES across Merseyside helped Aldi donate more than 33,000 meals to people in need over the summer school holidays.
The supermarket paired up its stores with local charities, community groups and foodbanks to donate surplus food, with the majority of meals going to causes supporting families and children.
The donation is part of Aldi’s commitment to donate 10million meals across the country in 2021, in partnership with community giving platform Neighbourly. So far this year, Aldi stores across the UK have already donated more than 6million meals to good causes.
Mary Dunn from Aldi UK, said: “We were proud to support so many incredible causes in Merseyside 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.”
