Stuart was recently delighted by the efforts of the Christmas Eve Aldi stores donation of surplus fresh food to local charities.
The initiative saw 1,181 meals being donated to the constituents of Pudsey, Horsforth and Aireborough who are in need of help over the Christmas period.
Stuart said: “Christmas can be a lovely time for many of us, but for those in need it can be an additional strain on their budget and it can have a detrimental effect on many of my constituents. I am so pleased to learn that the efforts of Aldi to donate their surplus fresh food to my constituents meant an incredible 1,181 meals were donated, which would have made a really significant impact on those who need an additional hand around Christmas while contributing to a real reduction in food waste.
I would like to personally thank Aldi for this kind initiative and I look forward to seeing their work with local communities now we have entered 2019.”
