Melita Limited has delivered €10,000 worth of food to the Foodbank Lifeline Foundation to be distributed to individuals and families currently facing crisis situations, the company says.

Charlene Xuereb Ciantar, Communications Manager at Melita, explained the reasons for its donation, saying, “a significant number of people in our community are facing serious hardship. The Foodbank Lifeline Foundation does incredible work and we know that the food which we have donated will go to those who really need it.”

The foundation, initially established in 2015, is intended to help people affected by homelessness, illness, low income and social benefit delays. It does this by providing food for a period of up to six weeks, allowing time for more permanent solutions to be found, Melita says.

Barbara Caruana, Manager of Foodbank Lifeline Foundation, said, “due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the number of individuals and families finding themselves in a crisis situation has grown.

“In turn this has put a great deal of pressure on our Foundation to be able to keep up with demand and ensuring that no person should suffer the indignity of hunger.

“Thanks to the generosity of both the public and organisations including Melita, we have thankfully been able to continue providing food to those who have needed our support during this challenging time.”
