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. 

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

If you are able to make or deliver soup, please email Christian at

If you are able to make individually wrapped and labelled sandwiches, please contact Maria Garofalo our sandwich coordinator, at
