ALDI, a leader in the grocery retailing industry since 1976, teamed up with Venmo, a popular mobile app that makes it easy for friends to exchange money, announced a new charitable campaign that lets Americans help give one million meals to families in need in honor of Friendsgiving.
“As friends and family gather around the dinner table this November, they can also help provide nutritious food to people in need,” said Andy Wilson, Chief Development Officer at Feeding America. “We’re proud to work with ALDI and Venmo to raise awareness and engagement in hunger relief.”
With its first-of-Its-kind emoji on Venmo, every time friends share the Turkey Hand Friendsgiving emoji in a Venmo payment note, ALDI will donate 10 meals to Feeding America®, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization.
ALDI sells the most frequently purchased grocery and household items, primarily under its exclusive brands, which are designed to meet or exceed the national name brands on taste and quality. ALDI operates nearly 1,700 U.S. stores in 35 states.
