Although David Timothy (a.k.a. The Soup Man) grew up in a home where he experienced the pangs of hunger first hand because of scarcity of food, he was fortunate enough to never experience being homeless. Hence his big compassion for people in need provoked a desire for him to start a ministry that caters to the stomachs of homeless people.
David was born in Detroit, Michigan and attended Western Michigan University where he graduated from in 1970. He had a fulfilling career in insurance for many years until he decided to follow his passion of helping people. David is also known for the Angel Christmas Project he started in 2006 where as many as two hundred and fifty homeless people spend the night in a fancy Dallas hotel and get a sumptuous banquet dinner as well as stockings filled with treats.
