About Sandwiches for SoupMobile: Al McCraw and Dan Garfias are our incredibly fabulous co-organizers. Our 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. Random Acts Sandwiches for SoupMobile supplies more than half of the sandwiches served by the SoupMobile.

      I did find a lady's cap that resembles the description as I walked out to the garage. It's still in my car. I will keep for next meetup - I will tag it and hopefully you will remember to ask me.

    First-timer and wanted to clarify, we should bring bread, zip bags and bologna? Where do the cookies and chips come from?

    • cheron

      There is a list of items to bring and you can bring one or more and as much as you like the event is named bologna sandwich chips and cookies for the homeless
      The chips & cookies will go into the zip loc bags for them as well And if i were you i would bring some "disposable"ru­bber gloves to wear sometimes they run out
