Hunger Patrol

Hunger Patrol team

St. Olave’s is home to the Hunger Patrol, a weekly mobile soup kitchen run under the auspices of the Order of Malta. Volunteers are needed to make soup or sandwiches Saturday afternoons and/or deliver it that evening with Dr. Christian Elia, a parishioner at St. Pius X Roman Catholic Church, or another veteran volunteer. 

Volunteers serve soup, sandwiches, juice and rolls, and distribute clothing and sleeping bags to the homeless downtown.

Volunteers needed! If you are able to deliver and serve soup, please sign up on this Google Form and email Christian at

If you are able to make soup and/or individually wrapped and labelled sandwiches, please email Linda De Ciantis Elia for details about the soup- and sandwich-making schedule.
