Wayne David, Labour MP for Caerphilly, has today given his support to the Christmas food donation campaign that is being run by the supermarket chain Aldi.
For the last two years, Aldi have been donating surplus food to designated charities on Christmas Eve. The supermarket chain has announced that it will once again be partnering with local charities to ensure that those most in need in the community receive fresh food during the festive period.
Last year more than 495, 500 meals were donated across the country, and this year Aldi hopes to build on that success by donating even more of their surplus food.
Local charities have until next Monday (11 November) to enquire about the possibility of connecting with their local Aldi store and benefiting from the surplus fresh food for the people that they work with. Enquiries should be sent by email to aldichristmas@Neighbourly.com
Wayne David said, “I am pleased to give my full support to this excellent initiative that Aldi are running once again. I know that the supermarket chain regularly collects surplus food and donates it to charities all year round. But their Christmas food donation campaign provides a superb opportunity for even more local charities to benefit.
“That is why I am encouraging all charities working in the Caerphilly constituency to send an email to aldichristmas@Neighbourly.com by next Monday to see if they can link up with either of the two local Aldi stores and receive some of the fresh food for the people that they help out locally.”
There are two Aldi stores located in the Caerphilly constituency. One is on New Road, Tir-Y-Berth and the other is on the Gallagher Retail Park, Caerphilly.
