The SoupMobile is a 'mobile' soupkitchen that was founded in 2003 on a wing and a lot of prayers. We are a faith based 501 ©(3) non-profit charity that Feeds the Homeless AND Needy Children in Dallas, Texas. Our Mission Statement is three simple words spoken by Jesus more than 2,000 years ago: “FEED MY SHEEP.”
Mission #1: Feeding the Homeless
The SoupMobile was founded in 2003 by David Timothy, a.k.a. SoupMan, on a wing and a lot of prayers. The SoupMobile is different from traditional soup kitchens in that we are ‘mobile’ and take the food to areas where the homeless congregate. We are literally on the front lines in the war against hunger in Dallas, Texas.
More important than the actual food we serve is the reason we do it. 2,000 years ago Jesus said ‘Feed MY Sheep.’ We believe he meant more than just food. He also meant love, caring, and compassion. Yes, the food feeds their bodies, but the love of Jesus feeds their souls.
The SoupMobile provides an incredible 400,000 meals per year. Each of our meals is served with one special magic ingredient---LOVE!!!
Mission #2: Feeding Needy Children
The SoupMobile feeds needy children in South Dallas
where 58% of the families live below the poverty line.
Mission #3: Christmas for the Homeless
in Dallas. They are literally at the bottom of the food chain.
Every year we pull out all the stops in our efforts to give them
a magical Christmas with special gifts and a fabulous
meal from Chick-fil-A.
Mission #4: Christ for the Homeless
SoupMobile Church is a 'one of a kind' church on the entire planet! It's because at SoupMobile Church the homeless are the ‘Members’ & if you & I attend we are their ‘Guests.’ A revolutionary concept to be sure but one that we think is long overdue.
SoupMobile Church is the 'home' church for the homeless in Dallas. The homeless have NEVER had their own 'home' church---UNTIL NOW!
SoupMobile Church is non-denominational but 100% Jesus based.
Every Sunday at 11:00 AM SoupMobile Church 2423 S. Good Latimer, Dallas, Texas 75215 is filled to capacity with our homeless members. In addition to giving the call to Christ each week, the Church also offers a wide variety of services like job placement, counseling, housing guidance and food and clothing assistance.
As you can well imagine we will not be able to pass the collection plate at SoupMobile Church. Our homeless members simply do not have any funds. Will you please give prayerful consideration to helping.

Meet The SoupMan
His name is David Timothy, but on the streets of Dallas they call him the SoupMan! David is the founder and Executive Director of the SoupMobile. He was born in Detroit, Michigan and graduated from Western Michigan University in 1970. For many years David had a fulfilling career in the field of insurance where he specialized in pension organization.
David was never homeless himself, but he grew up in a home where food was scarce and he experienced hunger first hand. This has given him a tremendous compassion for the homeless AND needy children and their daily struggles to find food to eat. So on a wing and a prayer(s) he started the SoupMobile in 2003.
The SoupMan considers himself to be blessed beyond measure because the Lord lets him serve the homeless and needy children in Dallas. David says he leads by following Christ!
The SoupMan's favorite soup is Tomato Soup!
