Vegas SOUP Event
Did you know you can support your community just by sitting in a garden eating soup? That’s the premise behind the Vegas SOUP event, which stands for Support, Organize and Unite People. The next SOUP will be at Vegas Roots Community Garden on September 23 at 5 p.m. The garden is in Las Vegas at 715 North Tonopah Drive. Admission price is a $10 donation.
SOUP is more than just a delicious dinner, which, on top of soup, features bread, drinks and live music. It’s an innovative micro-grant program. Representatives of small community organizations give short presentations on their current projects, and attendees vote on who receives funding, which comes from the proceeds of the evening.
Vegas SOUP is an offshoot of the international Soup program. Organizations in the U.S. and abroad hold similar events, featuring menus ranging from cheese steaks to borscht. To learn more about Vegas SOUP, call 702-636-4152. To read about other events in the Soup program, visit sundaysoup.org.
