An item a day for someone in need

We have some lovely news to report today! The Foodbank Lifeline Foundation is holding its ‘reverse advent calendar’ again this year, which invites people to donate one non-perishable food item every day. In this way, you can create a food pack that may become the lifeline for someone in need this festive season.

The foundation offers support to those who are in dire situations, as assessed by social workers, through the provision of food packs, which are delivered on a weekly basis.

It goes without saying that COVID-19 has led to an increasing amount of people who need assistance throughout the year. The foundation depends on the public’s generosity to sustain the effort.

here’s how you can get involved

  1. Build your own box and then drop it off at one of the foundation’s drop off locations, which include: Jacob’s Brew, The Atrium, Intercomp Tigne etc. For the full list of locations, click here.
  2. Pick up a few food items yourself and drop them off in the boxes, which are available at supermarkets such as Valyou Supermarket, Smart Supermarket and Pama shopping village, as well as others.
  3. Finally, you can buy your very own Reverse Advent Calendar. Simply visit pavipama.com.mt and make a donation online.

The Foodbank Lifeline Foundation is appealing to schools, companies and families to participate. It also called for ideas for office fundraisers, getting everyone together for a good cause, instead of the traditional Christmas party.

The Foundation is sponsored, throughout the year, by Izola Bank plc and the Alfred Mizzi Foundation.
