Aldi’s is running a food donation campaign this Christmas and all charities can benefit.
All Aldi UK stores will close from 6pm on Christmas Eve until Thursday 27th December 2018 to give staff a well-earned break, so Aldi stores will be donating unsold fresh food to good causes in the local community. Each of its UK stores will select one charity from their local area, and have asked local MPs to publicise this so that charities may benefit from a donation.
Interested parties should contact Christmas@aldi.co.uk with the following information:
· Organisation name · Charity number · Organisation focus (e.g. soup kitchen, food bank) · Contact details · If possible, the postcode of the 3 nearest Aldi stores
The closing date for applications is Sunday 18th November 2018. Successful applicants will require volunteers and transport to collect the food at 5.30pm on Christmas Eve. Only charities who apply via this email address will be eligible.
The Aldi store in my constituency of North Ayrshire & Arran is The Braes in Saltcoats.
Last year Aldi donated almost 500,000 meals from over 300 participating stores and hopes to donate even more this year.
