FACT CHECK: Aldi’s is NOT Giving Away Free Food on Christmas
The post is making its way around social media and it's partially true, but not in the United States.
I was sucked into this yesterday and I'm glad that I did some digging on it.
A post has been circulating around the internet about Aldi's issuing a "plea to people to come and collect free food on Christmas eve." It's not a hoax, thank goodness, but it doesn't apply to us Yankees.
Aldi in the UK will give out unsold food to shelters across the country on Christmas Eve, which is amazing. But if you see the post in the US, make sure you let people know that it does NOT apply across the pond.
Not to say that they won't ever do something like this but, for right now, we don't want people lining up outside their local Aldi on Christmas Eve for free food.
