Grocery delivery firm Yango Deli has announced a partnership with My Yard, a London-based charity, that will see leftover groceries from its dark stores delivered to families in need.
My Yard currently works with retailers including Marks & Spencer, Waitrose, Lidl, Aldi, Tesco and Sainsbury's, and the partnership marks its first collaboration with an ultra-fast grocery service.
'Positive Impact' For Communities
“At Yango Deli we have a clear philosophy - it is not enough to simply be a successful business; we must positively impact the communities where we operate," commented Evgeny Chernikov, general manager of Yango Deli UK.
"Our partnership with My Yard helps us support some of our most vulnerable neighbours while finding a good home for leftover food. We are in awe of the work My Yard does to make London a more caring and compassionate city and are honoured to be their first ultrafast grocery delivery partner."
Elsewhere, Rachel Dimond, founder and CEO of My Yard, described the partnership with Yango Deli as "exciting", given the retailer's broad range.
"[Yango Deli] offer an incredibly broad assortment, stocking their warehouses with 2,500 different products, on average," she said.
"This means that while their surplus is not large, it is incredibly varied, which makes it easier to deliver donations that are both vital and useful to Londoners who need our help." [Photo by Yango Deli]
