Charities, community groups and food banks are being urged to register to receive regular surplus food donations from the Aldi store in Topsham. 

As part of its successful partnership with Neighbourly, a community engagement platform that links businesses to food banks and charities, more than 900 of Aldi’s UK stores donate surplus food to good causes all year round. 

However, the Topsham store is now able to support even more organisations in the local area. 

Organisations paired with the stores can collect fresh and ambient food products that are near the end of their shelf life – including fruit, vegetables and bread. 

Mary Dunn, managing director of corporate responsibility at Aldi UK, said: “Our food donation scheme plays a vital role in ensuring that fresh and healthy food is accessible to those in need all year round, while also allowing us to redistribute surplus stock that would otherwise go to waste.”
