Local charities that register with the recently opened Oliver’s Place supermarket will be able to collect surplus food such as fruit, vegetables and baked goods, up to five days a week.

Aldi recently launched its partnership with Neighbourly, a not-for-profit organisation that links businesses to charitable organisations in their community.

Store Manager, Rob Alexander, said: “Since opening the Oliver’s Place store at the beginning of August, we’ve had a really successful few weeks and it’s been great to meet more of our new customers.

“We are thrilled to be joining Aldi’s partnership with Neighbourly and we can’t wait to start supporting local charities and food banks through this wonderful scheme, to provide help for those in need in our local community.”

Any charities in Preston that would like to partner up with the new Aldi store should email aldi@neighbourly.com.
