South Shore SOUP is a community dinner and micro-funding project, bringing us together to share a meal and raise funds for small, community-led projects that make Northwest Indiana better.
At a SOUP event we come together to eat as a community, and to hear from four different projects seeking to create social good. For $5, we get delicious, homemade soup, salad, bread—and a ballot for voting.
We talk about the projects, our values, and what’s important to us. We make new connections and new friends. We vote for the project that we like the best, and at the end of the night, we donate our door collection money to that project to help make it happen.
