Together we can team up to tackle hunger

Feed it back Logo

In early 2020, 1.5 million people in the UK reported not eating for a whole day because they had no money or access to food, and requests for help from local charities and food banks have more than doubled.

Working with our partner Neighbourly, and with your help, we want to do more to support these communities across the country. 

We're aiming to increase the amount of meals we donate to our partner charities to 5 million each and every year.

With your valued donations we can do even more to get support quickly and directly to the people that need it.

Help us tackle hunger

Hungry FW

At Lidl, we are supporting local groups to help make sure no families have to go hungry in the future.

We’re launching a dedicated fund to provide crucial support to our network of local charities and community groups to help in the fight against hunger.


Money raised through the fund will go to local good causes from food banks to community centres, up and down the country quickly and directly.  Working with our partner Neighbourly we know the hard work community groups do to alleviate the issues of poverty and hunger, but at this crucial time they need more help.
