Mark Meier is the founder of Heavens Helpers Soup Café. He came upon the idea of doing something good for his community and fellow man after fasting and creating a brochure. This brochure ended up being the outline for the Soup Café. Mark valued the idea of people being able to come and eat and visit in a setting where everyone felt accepted and empowered. He set up the restaurant style café on donations alone and was able to provide his guests with books, bibles and other donated items. After loosing the bid on their lease the Soup Café was able to relocate on donations and fundraising to a larger location closer to the homeless shelter.
