School donates supplies to Food Bank

Students from Our Lady Immaculate School, Ħamrun, donated a large quantity of food supplies to the Food Bank run by St Andrew’s Scots Church, Valletta. The Food Bank feeds 60 to 80 poor families a week.

The donation was held to mark the first World Day of the Poor held last Sunday. The food was collected from the school’s primary and secondary sections, and was coordinated by Social Studies option students in Forms 3 and 4.

The school said the food donation instilled a sense of civic duty and compassion in the students and was one of the many such activities it organises to help the Maltese community. It added that the message behind this latest initiative were Pope Francis’s words: “Let us love not with words but with deeds”.
