The Order of Malta Walks was founded as an embodiment of working with the sick and the poor in the NYC area. Similar to other charitable efforts, the year-round service is to the homeless through the distribution of food, warm hats and other clothing as well as information on program assistance.
Sixty members begin on the 3rd Tuesday of each month in the evening in prayer while making sandwiches and preparing care packages in lower Manhattan. The attendees are divided in groups to address areas of the city where needs are known to be most great for basic food and drink. This includes walking through public shared spaces like parks and transit terminals for a few hours until all food bags and other available resources have been delivered to those in need.
