Be Someone’s Lifeline This Christmas
We believe no one should suffer the indignity of hunger.
Join our cause!
Every Christmas we launch our Reverse Advent Calendar Campaign, bringing 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.
3 Easy Ways To Get Involved
We’ve updated the ways that you can help, making it easier for everyone to get involved, even if you’re not out and about at the moment.
Buy A Reverse Advent Calendar Box online!
Simply visit pavipama.com.mt and make a donation online!
You can choose from a €5 / €10 / €15 / €20 / €25 donation!
When making your purchase online, kindly note you still need to choose a delivery date, time and location, even if you’ve chosen the option to pick up from Pavi/Pama. However you won't actually need to collect or receive delivery, everything will be arranged directly between Foodbank Lifeline and Pavi/Pama. Thank you.
All proceeds will be collected on our behalf and then we will exchange that to purchase food at Pavi and Pama Supermarkets!
Go For A Traditional
Reverse Advent Calendar!
There’s nothing quite like giving back during this special time of year.
Simply grab a box, or any shopping bag you have lying around. Place one item in it for 24 days and you’ll have created a complete Reverse Advent Calendar!
Here’s the Shopping List which you can download and save to your phone or print off for next time you go shopping.
You can drop off your box at any one of these locations:
You can also drop off your boxes here:
Our team will be making the collection in collaboration with St John’s Rescue Corps
Some important info:
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.
If the item has a short date, could you mark it with a sticky note? That would help, so we can put it aside for immediate distribution.
Please remember we can’t accept fresh or frozen food or catering sized containers.
Every Little Helps!
We appreciate every single donation we receive, even if it’s just a single item.
We have branded collection boxes in the below supermarkets.
So, if you shop there, pick up one item and pop it in the box.

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.
The Sponsors Who Make It Happen
Over the years we have been assisted with donations from some amazing people, families, schools and companies. But we wouldn’t be where we are now, without these fantastic brands that have truly helped us in every way. 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.
