PEOPLE across the Wee County have benefitted from tens of thousands of free meals over the last few years, Aldi has announced.

The supermarket giant reported 30 million meals had been delivered to good causes since launching their food donation initiative in 2019, with 30,341 of these handed out in Clackmannanshire.

Liz Cox, corporate responsibility director at Aldi UK, said: “Donating 30,341 meals in Clackmannanshire through our partnership with Neighbourly is an amazing achievement.

In partnership with Neighbourly, each Aldi store in Clacks is partnered with foodbanks, charities and community groups, who receive surplus food year-round.

“The initiative is now more vital than ever for local community groups and charities who face soaring demand.

“We’re committed to doing what all that we can do to support people in the communities where we trade, and through our partnership with Neighbourly, we have helped to make food more accessible for those in Clackmannanshire.”

Hitting the 30 million mark follows Aldi’s donation of £250,000 to Neighbourly to launch their Emergency Winter Foodbank Fund to further support increased demand during the cold months.
