Orlando SOUP, modeled after the successful Detroit SOUP, is a micro-granting dinner celebrating and supporting creative projects in Orlando. For a donation of $10, attendees receive soup (made by Slow Food Orlando using fresh, local ingredients), salad and bread. Before dinner is served, attendees will listen to four short community project proposals covering a range of topics such as art, urban agriculture, social justice, social entrepreneurship, education, technology, and more. During dinner, attendees cast a vote for their favorite project and, at the end of the night, the project that receives the most votes is funded by $7 from each attendees’ donation. Winners will appear at future SOUP dinners to report their project’s progress.
This will be the second dinner in a series brought to you by East End Market, The Urban Think Foundation, Yelp, and Slow Food Orlando.
