How It Works
At the Foodbank Lifeline Foundation, we aim to help people who find themselves in a crisis situation, which may be the result of benefit delay, low income, illness, homelessness or housing issues, amongst others.

For individuals, couples or families to be eligible to apply for food, a referral by Care Professionals from organisations like Caritas, Sedqa, Appogg or Social Services is needed.

Kindly note that the maximum period that we can assist individuals, couples or families for is 6 weeks. The food parcels we supply will last for one week. We also cater for dietary conditions.

If you need our help, please follow these simple steps:
Step 1


Contact one of our associations listed below so that trusted Care Professionals will make a referral and we will be able to provide you with emergency food packages.

Step 2


Once the referral is made and the application is processed, you will be informed of whether you are eligible or not.
