ALDI’S stores in Hillingdon are now donating surplus food directly to local groups that redistribute supplies to vulnerable people in the area, including Field End Road Junior School.

The new partnerships follow a successful trial between the supermarket and community engagement platform, Neighbourly.

Aldi has paired its stores in Eastcote, South Ruislip and West Drayton with good causes that are now collecting surplus food up to five days a week.

Each store is donating perishable items such as fresh fruit and veg, long life items and baked goods.

Any causes in Hillingdon looking to partner with an Aldi store should email to apply.
