What is Salida Soup?
Salida Soup is a community based potluck where participants, through this microgranting dinner, assist creative projects in the Arkansas River Valley.
For a donation of $5 attendees receive soup and other fixings (attendees are asked to potluck salad, chips, bread, desserts, etc.) and a vote after hearing from three presentations ranging from art, urban agriculture, social justice, social entrepreneurs, education, technology and more. Each presenter has up to 5 minutes to share their idea and answer up to 4 questions from the audience. At the event, attendees eat, talk, share resources, enjoy art and vote on the project they think benefits the area the most. At the end of the event, while ballots are being counted, attendees are also asked to vote on which submissions to present the following month. Before the winner is announced, previous presenters are asked to give updates on their winning projects.
The winning proposal receive all of the money raised to carry out their project.
