Former pro wrestler-turned Diet member Antonio Inoki opened a temporary soup kitchen and fed 1,000 homeless and unemployed people in Shinjuku Chuo Park in Tokyo on Saturday.

It is the 13th time this year that Inoki, well-known for supporting humanitarian causes, has opened a soup kitchen for the homeless, TBS reported.

Volunteers joined Inoki to hand out ramen, bread and other food items.

Inoki said his key word for 2014 will be “challenge.” He said rising to a challenge is “something we should all aspire to, whether it be on a government or personal level.”
