Each store takes part in ALDI’s food waste reduction programme, with ALDI’s Kerry stores having donated over 155,000 meals through FoodCloud to local charities.
The stores are also part of ALDI’s Community Grants network, with St Francis Special School in Beaufort one of the local charities that availed of the €500 bursary grant in 2022.
