ALDI Christmas Food Rescue

ALDI Australia calls for charities and farmers to help collect unsold food over Christmas 2020.

ALDI is committed to reducing its waste footprint and supporting local communities. Throughout the year we work with food rescue charity partners to collect excess food from our stores, that would otherwise go to landfill. In 2019 we donated over 10 million meals to food rescue partners.

However, we appreciate that our regular charity partners do not always have the capacity to collect excess stock between Christmas Eve and the New Year. We are therefore looking for registered charities, farmers or other food rescue organisations to work with us to collect from stores during the festive period.

If you are interested in collecting from our stores between the dates of 24th December and 3rd January, please note there are a few requirements:

  • You will need to be a registered charity* or showcase appropriate food handling processes.
  • Be able to attend the store site for collection (during store opening hours, with your own transportation), and Agree to our Terms and Conditions.

While you may provide your preferences for the specific dates you would like to collect on and the donations (including non-food items), we are unable to guarantee that these preferences will be fulfilled. The on-selling of any ALDI products is prohibited.

Applications will close on the 9th December, 2020. All successful applicants will receive an email notification with their allocated store(s) and pick-up details by 15th December 2020.

Applicants will be assessed on a first come, first served basis. If you are interested in collecting from ALDI Australia stores on a more regular basis after Christmas 2020, please indicate this on your application form.

For further information on timings and inclusion requirements, we recommend you read the Terms and Conditions.

We wish you the best of luck with your application and hope you have a very Merry Christmas.

*We welcome charities, farmers, zoos and other suitable organisations to participate in this program. You must indicate what type of organisation you are in the application form, under Type of Organisation.
