Charities urged to contact Aldi for free Christmas food

* Ken Skates AM and Susan Elan Jones MP. 

Charities are being urged to contact their local supermarket for a Christmas food donation.

Clwyd South MP Susan Elan Jones and AM Ken Skates want to make organisations such as soup kitchens and foodbanks aware of an annual Aldi giveaway which helps local people.

An Aldi spokesman said: “All our UK stores will close from 6pm on Christmas Eve until Thursday December 27 to give our colleagues a well-earned break, so we will be donating unsold fresh food to good causes in the local community. Each of our UK stores will select one charity from their local area.”

Interested parties should contact with their name, charity number (if applicable), a shirt description (eg soup kitchen, foodbank etc), their contact details and, if possible, the postcode of their three nearest Aldi stores.

Clwyd South MP Susan Elan Jones said: “It is important to note that only charities who apply via this email address will be eligible. The closing date for applications is Sunday, November 18 and successful applicants will require volunteers and transport to collect the food at 5.30pm on Christmas Eve.”

Ken Skates AM added: “Last year Aldi donated almost 500,000 meals from over 300 participating stores. Hopefully we can help make it even more this year. If you would like any more information, contact Lee Wright on 020 7300 6343 or email”
