YMCA homeless shelter Dar Niki Cassar supported by KFC

KFC Malta restaurants have provided food for YMCA residents daily since 2016.

YMCA manages a round-the-clock shelter at its Dar Niki Cassar Home in Msida, which houses some 30 homeless individuals per night as well as providing longer term accommodation for those in need.

KFC Malta launched Harvest, the world’s first-ever prepared food donation program, in 2016 and have since been donating surplus food products. As part of Harvest, restaurant team members package unsold and wholesome food into approved containers and store the product safely in the restaurant’s freezer. The restaurant coordinates a weekly pickup schedule while tracking the donations to ensure safety and quality.

YMCA CEO Anthony Camilleri stated, “KFC’s decisive contribution, which first started in 2016, has grown from strength to strength, and is a huge boost for our organisation”.

Mikhail Schembri, Marketing Executive of Food Chain Limited commented, “We are delighted to be making a contribution to such a worthy cause and hope that it will help sustain awareness about a problem that often goes unnoticed in our community.”
