Charities and Aldi deliver 8000 meals to vulnerable Fife families during Easter holidays
Charities across the Kingdom teamed up with supermarket giant Aldi to donate 7850 meals to vulnerable people and families in Fife over the Easter school holidays.
The supermarket paired up its stores with local charities, community groups and foodbanks to donate surplus food, prioritising donations to those focused on feeding children.
Around 36 tonnes of food were donated throughout Scotland, with more than 61,000 meals, including over 47,500 meals for children.
The donation is part of Aldi’s commitment to donate 10 million meals across the country in 2021, in partnership with community giving platform Neighbourly.
Mary Dunn, managing director of Corporate Responsibility at Aldi, said: “We’re proud to support good causes in Fife, helping them to provide meals to those in need over the Easter period.
“At a time when more people are experiencing financial hardship and food insecurity due to Covid-19, we are committed to doing what we can to donate more meals in 2021 than ever before.”
