Ultrafast grocery delivery service Getir has partnered with Neighbourly in a bid to redistribute surplus food to local causes.
Getir’s gstores will all be partnered with at least one local good cause through the Neighbourly platform.
The stores will notify the charities of surplus food donations, prompting them to collect the food from their local gstore daily.
The initial launch will be across 50 stores and aims to be nationwide by the end of the year.
“Neighbourly is an essential partner who will support us in giving back to the local communities we operate in,” Getir regional general manager Turancan Salur said.

“We want to improve the lives of those in our cities and through Neighbourly we can redistribute our surplus food to charities and help feed those in need.”
Steve Butterworth, Neighbourly CEO added: “Making sure unsold food is put to the best possible use in communities while combating the environmental impact of wasted food is a win-win.”
“We’re delighted to be working with Getir as they roll out their new surplus programme across all their cities, helping them build strong relationships with charity partners and make a difference for local families.”
