After a successful three-year partnership from 2018-2020, during which time the equivalent of 15.1 million meals were distributed with their support — AIB renewed its partnership with FoodCloud in March 2021 for another three years, investing €1.5 million to support FoodCloud to continue tackling the enormous environmental issue of food waste and to support local communities across Ireland .
Our long-term strategic partnership with AIB has been essential in supporting FoodCloud’s growth through a challenging time. It will continue to support us in tackling the enormous environmental issue of food waste and to support local communities across Ireland and internationally.
In addition to the financial support in 2018, AIB also established an employee volunteering programme as part of AIB Together, the bank's community investment programme which was set up as a way to give back to local communities across the country by building on the positive contributions that AIB employees are making.
Since our partnership began, more than 1,640 AIB volunteers have donated nearly 9,000 hours of their valuable time and are an integral part of our daily operations.
