National charity Neighbourly was set up in 2014 to connect individuals, businesses and communities to support good causes for a more sustainable world and celebrate achievements in an inspirational way.
It has partnered with Lidl in North Hykeham to help staff manage their ‘back of store’ food surplus programme. As a result, free food donations can be collected from the North Hykeham branch throughout the working week.
Those who have registered receive an alert from the store when it has food available so that they can see what is on offer before collecting – a great way to plan how to use it to avoid waste.
The alerts are sent out between 10am and 11am and collections can take place anytime until 7pm the same day. The food types are a mixture of fresh fruits and vegetables, bakery goods and ambient food items.
To take advantage of this scheme, visit neighbourly.com/goodcause/new. You will need to agree to the terms and conditions and have evidence of a level 2 hygiene certificate.
