Being a smarter grocer means more than just providing high-quality products at low prices; it means helping to build strong communities and contributing to a better world.

We believe community support should be based on the needs of each individual community. And we’re dedicated to funding and sponsoring local and regional initiatives that support health and wellness initiatives for children and youth.

Alex's Lemonade Stand

ALDI is proud to continue their partnership with Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, an organization focused on funding impactful research to help fight childhood cancer.

Last July, we invited shoppers to help us reach our goal of $1 million by simply paying a quarter forward – because a little change can make a big difference. Our goal is to move one step closer to finding a cure for all children with cancer.

ALDI Smart Kids

We’re proud to support the awesome kids in our local communities. Through ALDI Smart Kids, we partner with nonprofit organizations that make a positive impact on our kids’ health and wellness.

So, whether your mission is to support kids through education, arts, nutrition, physical activity or any other program that inspires them to excel and be healthy, we encourage you to learn more about the program and the local grants available to support your school or nonprofit organization

Action for Healthy Kids

ALDI partners with Action for Healthy Kids (AFHK) to encourage healthy, active lifestyles for students, teachers and family members in our communities across the US.

Funding from ALDI helps support programs and projects like refurbishing outdoor play spaces, planting aeroponic school gardens, implementing farm-to-school programs, hosting fitness and nutrition classes, purchasing physical activity equipment and implementing before-and after-school fitness programs. Watch more information about our program in this Action for Healthy Kids video.

During the last week of April, ALDI sponsors Every Kid Healthy™ Week with AFHK. This event shines a spotlight on the great efforts schools are making to link nutrition, physical activity and learning –because healthy kids are better prepared to learn!

Feeding America

ALDI has a longstanding partnership with Feeding America and is proud to be one of the organization’s Leadership Partners. We recognize that not having enough healthy food can have serious implications for a child’s physical, emotional and mental health.

That’s why each ALDI store partners with a local Feeding America member food bank, which allows us to positively impact our local communities through food donations, while also supporting our goals to limit environmental impact by reducing waste.

In partnership with Feeding America, we also organize volunteer events for our employees to pack disaster relief boxes to support individuals and families displaced from their homes due to natural disasters.

Employee Volunteerism

Volunteering is an important aspect of our commitment to helping to build strong communities, which is why our employees across the nation organize local volunteer events throughout the year.

These volunteer efforts can range from packing backpacks with nutritious food at a local food bank to packing disaster relief boxes for Feeding America. And we’re always looking for ways to support employees who wish to donate to causes and organizations they care deeply about.
