Aldi tweeted a statement yesterday about offering a surplus of food that they expect to have for those that are in need of food over Christmas.
In the statement they said that Aldi will be offering local organisations the opportunity to receive surplus food from their stores on the afternoon of Christmas Eve.
Due to the fact that these stores will be closed from 4pm on Christmas Eve until December 27th there will be good quality surplus food products that they can redistribute in support of the less fortunate individuals and also to prevent food from going to waste.
Aldi say they cannot deliver the products and ask organisations to make sure they are able to collect, a variety of food is on offer and Aldi have said they expect each store to have between 20 and 30 crates of surplus food to give away.
Organisations must contact Aldi as soon as possible with the following details:
- Charity or Group name
- Main contact name
- Main contact phone number
- City or town
- The store postcode from where you want to collect the food from
- Type of products you require
Organisations and groups please contact Nicki Monaghan or a member of the Energy and Environment Team on +44 1827 711-800.
