ALDI has teamed up with Witton Church Walk Primary School as part of a new partnership scheme.

The supermarket is teaming up with good causes nationwide, donating surplus food up to five days a week.

Following a trial that began in January, Aldi stores are now donating perishable items such as fresh fruit and veg, long life items and baked goods.

Other good causes include homelessness charities, and last year the supermarket donated two million meals to charity and expects to increase this by 50 per cent now the trial has been extended to its 827 stores.

Fritz Walleczek, of Aldi UK and Ireland, said: “We’re always looking for new and creative ways to increase the amount of food we are able to donate.

"This partnership is enabling us to distribute even more surplus stock, while supporting a vast range of good causes, across Cheshire.

“Our aim is for fresh, healthy food to be accessible for everyone, and Neighbourly are helping us to extend this commitment beyond our affordable range of fresh products.”

Any charities in Northwich looking to partner up with an Aldi store should email to apply.

Aldi has not sent any waste to landfill since 2014, and has also pledged to reduce operational food waste by 50 per cent by 2030 as part of the Friends of Champions 12.3 network.
