Eat Soup, Have Fun, Change Stuff
SOUP is a micro granting dinner, designed to bring people together to have fun and support projects that benefit the local area and its communities.
Established in Detroit in 2010, the SOUP model is a powerful tool to start conversations, practice democracy and fund new projects/people/ideas in our neighbourhood, community or city. SOUP is a brilliant way to redevelop, reorganise and reimagine where we live – the projects that get funded are up to the community!
We have run SOUPs in a variety of places around Devon and Cornwall, hearing pitches from a huge variety of projects; from an app for mindfulness to an orchestra; from helping people with autism/aspergers to combating high levels of food waste.
