On Monday, September 9 the downtown Dallas Ritz Carlton hosts the annual Souper 100 Ladies Tea. The Souper 100 is a group of 100 ladies who support the SoupMobile’s missions of ‘Feeding and Sheltering’ the homeless and are passionate for serving Christ. Guests will be treated to complimentary tea and crumpets and enjoy a special performance by the Dallas International Street Church Choir. Valet is complimentary for Souper 100 ladies, so be sure to tell them who you are . Ordained minister and former Chaplain at the prestigious West Point Military Academy, SoupMobile Chaplain John Bolyan, M. Div. will be on hand and Keynote speaker will be Doris Williams, co-owner of Williams Chicken. Williams Chicken is a well-known restaurant business operating in the Dallas area with more than 40 locations. Doris and her husband Hiawatha founded Williams Chicken 26 years ago on a wing and a lot of prayers, and with God’s blessing have expanded into a successful business, employing hundreds of people and serving up great food.
The SoupMobile is a mobile soup kitchen that feeds and shelters the homeless. As a faith-based nonprofit, they serve over 200,000 meals per year and shelter the homeless in their eight group homes. Their Mission Statement is three simple words spoken by Jesus: “Feed my sheep.” David Timothy (a.k.a. the SoupMan) founded The SoupMobile in 2003. His vision was to start a traditional soup kitchen where the homeless could come to eat. However, after assessing the needs of Dallas area homeless population, David realized that a mobile soup kitchen would be more effective. Because the homeless have limited access to transportation, the SoupMan and his fabulous Soup Team serve meals to them where they gather. The SoupMobile serves a complete hot, hearty and healthy meal to the homeless every weekday, year round, rain or shine and even on holidays. Chef’s prepare each meal with ‘love’ as the magic ingredient. As the SoupMobile approaches each of its feeding stops, the SoupMan blasts the theme from Rocky, his favorite movie, over the van’s loudspeaker system. Heard for miles around, this music tells the homeless that it’s time for lunch. The SoupMan believes that there’s a little bit of Rocky in all of us. He also believes that in each one of us resides the spirit and the passion to triumph and be the champion of our own lives! The SoupMobile serves over 200,000 meals per year, literally on the front lines of the war against hunger in the Dallas area.
