Be someone's lifeline this Christmas!
 
 
Help us help the hungry

Christmas is a time for giving! And with so many people facing increased hardships this year, there’s never been a better way to show you care, than helping to feed a family in need.

Our Reverse Advent Calendar Campaign brings the community together to help those in need. As Malta’s only Foodbank that gives directly to people in need, we have a constant challenge to make sure our shelves are stocked. The Reverse Advent Calendar is an opportunity for you, your family, business or school to get involved.

Some important info:

 

  1. Please note we can’t legally accept expired food items to hand out. So please don’t donate them. It just causes more work for our volunteers.

  2. If the item has a short date, could you mark it with a sticky note? That would be really helpful so we can put aside for immediate distribution.

  3. Please remember we can’t accept fresh or frozen food or catering sized containers.

Why Help Us?
 
 
 

Foodbank Lifeline Foundation was set up by Reverend Kim Hurst in 2015 when a member of her congregation saw someone searching for food in a public rubbish bin. Upon hearing that no foodbank existed in Malta she made it her mission to ensure that no one in Malta had to suffer the indignity of hunger. From feeding 30 families a month when we first opened, we are now feeding thousands of people every year. Poverty is a real and growing problem in Malta.

 

Whilst our wish is that one day there won’t be a need for a foodbank in Malta, till that day it is our mission to ensure that no child or adult has to suffer the indignity of hunger. Operating as a fully fledged NGO and foundation, we rely solely on donations from the community to be able to stay open.

 

All our clients are referred to us by Care Professionals. We aim to help people for a maximum of 6 weeks, till a longer-term solution can be found. But sometimes our clients need help for longer.

 

Please help us. Together we can make a difference.

Whether it’s by running and paying for our campaigns and social channels, to making financial donations, supporting the Reverse Advent Calendar or donating food – these are the companies who are a part of us and to whom our team and our clients, will be forever grateful.
