The SoupMobile was founded in 2003 by David Timothy, whose mission in life is to bring dignity to the over 10,000 homeless in the Dallas area. Timothy, also known as the SoupMan, 200,000 hot meals per year from his mobile kitchen. Each day at noon he serves about 600 hot meals to the city’s homeless.
There is a way you can help with this effort. Each week SoupMobile distributes 1,000 sandwiches, and you can help make them this weekend. Show up at 2803 Taylor Street in Deep Ellum (Life in Deep Ellum) this Saturday, December 20th at 10am with your sandwich making supplies which should include bread, mustard, bologna, and sliced cheese. Also bring along plastic gloves, sandwich bags, mustard, and cookies. They request no potato chips as they break easily.
It’s not necessary to sign up or RSVP, but it is helpful if you can. There is typically an after party at a restaurant in Deep Ellum for those that are interested. There are other volunteer opportunities with the SoupMobile that may be found here.
