Omaha SOUP is a microgranting dinner celebrating and supporting creative community projects in Omaha. For a minimum donation of $5, attendees receive soup, salad, bread and a vote to hear from four presentations ranging from art to urban ag and social justice to social entrepreneurship, education, technology and MORE. Each presenter has four minutes to share their idea and answer four questions from the audience.
At the event, attendees eat, talk, share resources, enjoy art and vote on the project they think benefits the city the most. At the end of the night, we count the ballots and the winner goes home with all of the money raised to carry out their project. Winners come back to a future SOUP dinner to report their project’s progress. For more information or you would like to apply, check our Facebook events.
