Volunteers cook a delicious stew on the third Sunday of each month and take the food, along with fruit, salad, and sandwiches, to three shelters in Rockville
- Chase Shelter for men
- Helping Hands Shelter for women & children
- Dorothy Day Shelter for women
Another shelter, Rainbow for women, operates from November through March and volunteers stay there for a couple of hours to serve the meal.
Volunteers are always needed for cooking and for delivery!

About The Feed The Hungry Program
The Saint George Feed the Hungry Program began with the leadership of two caring parishioners, Susan and Albert Alexander. “They showed us the way.” The couple believed a church such as Saint George needed to reach out to the greater community, and the best way to do that was to prepare a meal and serve food to several shelters in the area. What the Alexanders found was a ready and able volunteer group led by Julia Plomasen to prepare a “hot” meal to complement all the foods.
That was in 1990. The program was taken over in 1992 by Peggy and Bob Hackman who continued to provide outstanding leadership in their work with a dedicated group of parishioners for over eight years. In 2010 Margaret Oge took over the Chairmanship and will continue to coordinate and manage the Feed the Hungry program where volunteers cook, deliver, and serve delicious stews made with meat, vegetables, and potatoes, along with fruit, salads, and sandwiches. Baked goods such as breads, rolls, and pastries are donated by Stella’s Bakery and picked up for delivery to Chase Men’s Shelter, Helping Hands Women and Children Shelter, and Dorothy Day Women’s Shelter. Food is also delivered and served to the homeless women at Rainbow Place, a shelter open from November 1 through March 30.
