Nearly 16 million children in America struggle with hunger. That’s one in five kids at risk of hunger. Share Our Strength is working to end childhood hunger in the United States on a state-by-state basis through funding and coalition building. Through these efforts, they provide families with access to existing public and private programs like school breakfast and lunch, summer meals and food stamps. Since 2005, the national touring dinner series has raised almost $3 million.
“Ending childhood hunger is a cause I have been passionate about for many years,” said Chef Pyles. “I look forward to hosting this dinner every year.”

Founded by David Timothy a.k.a. The SoupMan in 2003, the SoupMobile is a 'mobile' soupkitchen that began feeding the homeless. Unlike a regular soup kitchen where the homeless come to you, the SoupMobile is mobile and we go to where the homeless congregate to serve them. In our first year of operations we served 5,000 meals. At the time we thought it was a lot...
Now the SoupMobile serves an incredible 200,000 hot, nutritious, tasty meals per year to the homeless on Dallas' South side. More than just food, we serve LOVE to our homeless friends.
On a typical day our Head Chef and his assistants arrive at the SoupMobile kitchen at 8:00AM and start cooking. We then serve 600 hot, healthy and hearty meals to the homeless at lunchtime.
