About Chips and Cookies for SoupMobile: On 1st and 3rd Fridays, we bag individual servings of chips and cookies for the SoupMobile to include in their meals for the homeless. The SoupMobile gives out more than 600 bags of cookies and 600 snack bags every day!
About the SoupMobile: The SoupMobile was started by David Timothy, aka The SoupMan, who passed out 5,000 plain peanut butter sandwiches by himself the first year. The SoupMobile has grown and grown every year since. 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.
