“We are very concerned that we may soon have to close down”

Updated: Oct 8, 2018



As supplies dry out, the Foodbank is in risk of closing down.

In January 2017, the Foodbank Lifeline Foundation in Old Bakery Street, Valletta, risked closure as its supplies dried out. To address this problem, Rev. Kim Hurst and her group of volunteers all appealed for immediate help by contacting the public through several forms of media.


Interviewed by the Times of Malta, Rev. Kim Hurst explained how the number of referrals that the Foodbank is receiving is increasing at a worrying rate. The majority of those seeking the Foodbank Lifeline’s support are Maltese families going through financial difficulties, who would be referred to the Foodbank Lifeline by agencies such as Appogg and Caritas along with people from the Child Protection, Mental Health and Oncology teams.

Throughout the year, the volunteers behind the Foodbank will be trying new ways of sourcing funds and food supplies along with seeking new ways to collaborate with NGOs.


Find out how you can help the Foodbank, either through volunteering or donations.
