  • Donations—While sandwiches are being made, someone makes a trip to the store to buy what we are short of. Give donations to Al or Dan before sandwich-making starts

About Sandwiches for SoupMobile: The goal each week is to make more than 1,500 sandwiches, about 2½ days’ meals. We also bag individual servings of chips and cookies - the SoupMobile gives out more than 600 bags of cookies and 600 snacks bags every day, and individual bags of snacks and cookies are easy to store until they are used.

About the SoupMobile: The SoupMobile was started by David Timothy, aka The SoupMan, who passed out 5,000 peanut butter sandwiches by himself. The SoupMobile has grown every year. The SoupMobile mobile soup kitchen now serves more than 600 meals a day (200,000+ meals a year) to hungry, homeless people in the South Dallas area.This event ~Sandwiches for SoupMobile supplies more than half of the sandwiches served by the SoupMobile.

    Amazing how just a little effort can help so many. This is such a needed cause and one of my favorites and getting to hang out with girlfriends is a plus. Had a great time.

    It's always nice to help the Soupmobile. The excitement of all the volunteers is contagious. After we walked to a restaurant and had a great lunch and got to visit.

    UPS!! I forgot.
    1) Lock you purse in the car~ there is no place for it inside the venue.
    2) Just in case all the free parking is taken when you get there have some change for a meter.

    I can bring zip locks, (how many?) and cookies

    January 10, 2013

    • Cheryl L.

      As many as you want, they can always use bags. When I get cookies I usually go to Walmart and get their band of "Oreos" and Chocolate chips. Again depends on how generous you are able to be. It's all appreciated.
