Grocery startup Yango Deli will deliver leftover stock to “Londoners in need” after teaming up with a food charity.
My Yard hailed its first partnership with an on-demand service, but conceded that its donations would not be “large”.
The non-profit also works with grocery titans including Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Waitrose, Marks & Spencer, Lidl, and Aldi.
“The partnership with Yango Deli is exciting because they offer an incredibly broad assortment, stocking their warehouses with 2,500 different products,” My Yard founder Rachel Dimond said.
“This means that while their surplus is not large, it is incredibly varied.”
Yango Deli, owned by Russian multinational Yandex, launched in Britain last month.
It delivers from four “dark stores” across London, in Bethnal Green, Battersea, Bermondsey and Acton.
“It is not enough to simply be a successful business; we must positively impact the communities where we operate,” Yango Deli UK boss Evgeny Chernikov said.
“Our partnership with My Yard helps us support some of our most vulnerable neighbours while finding a good home for leftover food.”
