There are people who can’t start the day without having their cup of coffee. Their love for coffee is so strong, they even identify themselves as ‘coffee addicts’. Are you one of them? If you are, we have some good news for you!
Jacob’s Brew, a coffee shop in Marsaskala have agreed to begin using their premises as a drop off point for anyone wishing to donate food items towards Foodbank Lifeline Foundation. This means that you can go enjoy a fresh (and not to mention, delicious) cup of coffee and also donate food to fight hunger in Malta.
Sarah Cachia, one of the owners at Jacob’s Brew, expressed how the work carried out by the Foodbank Lifeline Foundation is a worthy cause and by playing just a small part in helping those in need, she believes that together, we can all make a difference!
"At Jacob's Brew we have made it our mission to help families facing hard times by instigating initiatives in the name of our support group/NGO Survivors Malta funded by our profits derived from our shops revenue.” – Sarah Cachia
Jacob’s Brew opened its doors two years ago and did not wait to begin helping people. Upon launching this family-owned venture, an amazing heart-warming concept was introduced – PAY IT FORWARD.
The idea behind it is very easy to understand. Every time you go to Jacob’s Brew, you will get your receipt stamped with Jacob’s Brew’s personalised Pay It Forward stamp. This will give you the opportunity to pass this receipt to an individual, couple, or family who you feel may need support. Once those in need get a hold of this receipt, Jacob’s Brew will offer them a free pot of coffee or tea upon presentation.
Jacob’s Brew can be found at 144, Triq is-Salini, Wied il-Ghajn (https://goo.gl/maps/U39jcghfscQgvByR8) and are open every day! Opening hours are as follows:
Monday 08:30 - 14:00
Tuesday 08:30 - 18:00
Wednesday 08:30 - 14:00
Thursday 08:30 - 18:00
Friday 08:30 - 18:00
Saturday 08:30 - 18:00
Sunday 08:30 - 18:00
Foodbank Lifeline wishes to thank everyone involved who made us create a seventh distribution point around Malta. Upon opening our doors in 2015, our goal was to distribute a number of donation boxes around Malta and Gozo and we are proud to state that we are doing exactly that, having no intention to stop anytime soon!
If there is anyone who is interested in lending a helping hand towards Foodbank Lifeline’s mission in ending hunger in Malta, they can get in touch with us through email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or via our social channels on Facebook and Instagram.
