European supermarket chain ALDI is known for selling a wide variety of quality grocery items at discounted prices. Its stores are popping up in more and more cities throughout the U.S. Now, through a new partnership with Venmo, the supermarket is feeding even more people at an even heftier discount, aka, completely free.


Every time a Venmo user shares the custom-designed Turkey Hand Friendsgiving Emoji in a payment note during the month of November, ALDI will donate 10 meals to Feeding America, the country's largest domestic hunger-relief organization.

You can also type "Friendsgiving" to autocomplete in a Venmo transaction to get meals donated. The companies are donating up to a total of 1 million meals.


"Delicious food is key to Friendsgiving, but the centerpiece is the people," said Venmo spokesperson Josh Criscoe. "By creating the first-ever Friendsgiving emoji and teaming up with ALDI, Venmo is happy to help feed hungry families in America while celebrating the season with friends and family."

Using the Turkey Hand Friendsgiving emoji is an easy way to help feed a lot of people this Thanksgiving.
