The Soupremes is a longstanding OLA Parish Ministry which has several teams of volunteer chefs who cook every Monday night from November 1 – March 30 for the Central Homeless Shelter. Last winter OLA was able to provide over 2,700 meals to the homeless at the shelter.  For this winter we are asking for the OLA community to help provide fresh & healthy meals for the homeless by donating Costco, Kroger, or Publix gift cards in any amount. In particular Costco gift cards are wanted as we can buy food in bulk. By having these grocery gift cards we enable our cooking teams to buy fresh meat, fruit and vegetables which otherwise may not be affordable on our budget. Please drop your grocery gift cards in any of the collection baskets, and we will distribute them to our team leaders.

Calling all Bakers! If you are interested in helping out with baking a dessert for one of our meal dates for 125 homeless gentlemen, please contact Anne Marie Shulman at or Jill Termini at We will send out a sign up genius so you can sign up for a night to provide your baked goods. We also are happy to take store bought. Thanks so much for your support of our Soupremes ministry!
