Aldi’s Bridlington store is now donating surplus food directly to the Kingfisher Café and Christ Church Bridlington to support their efforts to feed the homeless.
This new partnership is part of a trial between the supermarket and community engagement platform, Neighbourly. So far, Aldi has paired up a total of six stores in Yorkshire with local good causes that are now collecting surplus food up to five days every week.
Steve Butterworth, Neighbourly CEO said “We are delighted to be partnering with Aldi on this programme and to help them realise their ambition to benefit those communities local to each and every one of their stores across the UK. Food surplus is a challenge Aldi is committed to playing its part to address.”

Aldi has not sent any waste to landfill since 2014, and has also pledged to reduce operational food waste by 50% by 2030 as part of the Friends of Champions 12.3 network.
