Aldi donated more than 13,100 meals to good causes in Devon during the recent Easter school holidays.

This was part of a UK-wide donation, which saw around 833,600 meals go to local charities and community groups, benefiting 55 causes in Devon.

The donations are part of Aldi's longstanding partnership with Neighbourly, a platform that connects businesses with charities.

Liz Fox, national sustainability director at Aldi UK, highlighted the importance of Aldi's contribution.

She said: "We know that the school holidays can be a particularly challenging time for families, and food banks regularly see heightened demand.

"By working with such amazing charities in Devon through our partnership Neighbourly, we are able to give back by providing donations to those who need it most."

Neighbourly's CEO Steve Butterworth echoed Ms Fox's sentiments.

He said: "The ongoing cost-of-living crisis has increased the demand on food banks, particularly during the school holidays.

"Aldi's contributions serve as a lifeline for many, providing essential support to enable these causes to continue their vital work within local communities."

Since Aldi's partnership with Neighbourly began in 2019, Aldi has donated more than 44 million meals across the UK.

They also recently launched a spring fund with Neighbourly, offering microgrants of £500 to support struggling families through eligible charities within the Neighbourly network.
