Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine To Open Up A Soup Kitchen In Haiti

Written by Kiel Egging on January 15, 2013

Everyone give Dave Mustaine a high five.

In another example of why heavy metal stars are some of the nicest people on earth, the Megadeth frontman is funding a new soup kitchen, which is being set up in Haiti.

Haiti is recognised as the poorest country in the Americas, according to the Human Development Index, and was hit hard by a catastrophic earthquake in early 2011 that killed over 300,000 people and left millions more injured and homeless.

Mustaine, who is a Born Again Christian, has teamed up with a local ministry called ‘Outside the Bowl’ to deliver the soup kitchen – which will provide up to 8,000 meals a day for needy citizens.

He announced his new venture via his Facebook page:

I really am trying to live my life differently today, and part of that was in finding something to believe in. One of the things that has happened since I started this transformation is getting involved with helping widows and orphans, and helping the homeless.

I was approached with an opportunity, and thanks to your unwavering support, my family and I have been able to fund a soup kitchen in Haiti with a ministry called Outside the Bowl, and you will be proud to know that when it is started (which will be very soon), we will be feeding up to 8,000 meals a day to the less fortunate.

I can find comfort knowing up to 8,000 meals will be served each day, along with a healthy serving of love and some spiritual nourishment as well.
