Aldi’s Community Grants Program helps fund local charities and community organizations that contribute to vital businesses and services in their local communities. Each local charity supported by Aldi staff is handpicked, enabling them to help the good local causes they care about.
Aldi operates twenty-four stores in County Cork, and is deeply involved in the local community. Aldi collaborates with a variety of Irish food and beverage producers across Cork and spent more than €68.5 million with its Cork suppliers in 2020.
To date, Aldi has donated a total of €2.9 million of meals to FoodCloud plus €400,000 (collected from Aldi’s sold-in-store inventory, package donations, voucher donations, partnership support and employee/customer donations) to Barnardos since the partnership in November 2020.
Commenting on this, John Curtin, Group Procurement Director, Aldi Ireland said:
The Community Grants Program has supported 850 donations to local charities so far. By the end of the year, the program will have donated over €450,000 since its inception in 2016.
