The Ritz-Carlton and SoupMobile Feed the Hungry

From The Ritz-Carlton Kitchen to The SoupMobile Headquarters,
Guests Aid in Feeding The Hungry

The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas and SoupMobile, Inc. have partnered together to provide guests with the opportunity to work behind-the-scenes and Become a “Soup Savior” or visit the front-lines of hunger to See & Serve “The Save” as a part of The Ritz-Carlton’s “Give Back Getaways” program. “Give Back Getaways” is a component of Community Footprints, The Ritz-Carlton’s social and environmental responsibility program, and provides guests with a unique opportunity to volunteer within the communities they visit.

Food and shelter are two of the most basic needs for long-term well-being, yet an alarming number of North Texans lack these critical resources.

Guests of The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas are invited to Become a “Soup Savior” and give back to the SoupMobile’s mission. As “Soup Saviors”, guests experience the real-life excitement of the culinary world by working with The Ritz-Carlton culinary team in the hotel’s state-of-the-art kitchen to create a nutritious and filling soup. The freshly-prepared soup is immediately delivered to the SoupMobile headquarters for lunchtime distribution to a group of Dallas residents who need it most.

Guests of The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas are also invited to See & Serve “The Save” with the local community and SoupMobile team through a very special hands-on experience. Volunteers meet at the SoupMobile headquarters and caravan to a nearby outdoor area, where SoupMobile patrons await the arrival of smiling faces and a hot meal.

"The SoupMobile is honored to be a beneficiary of The Ritz-Carlton's Give Back Getaways program. To have the opportunity to stay at The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas, see the inner workings of their kitchen and work with their team on a project that gives back, is an exciting and meaningful experience that will make a difference to so many lives,” said David Timothy, Founder of SoupMobile, Inc.

Become a “Soup Savior” is offered on select Tuesdays from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m., and See & Serve “The Save” is offered on select Wednesdays from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Reservations should be made by calling 214.922.4731. One week advance notice is required for both programs and participation is based upon availability.
