Charlotte Soup is an event based on a similar idea from Detroit. The concept is simple; citizens
come together to share a meal, and then generate ideas to help improve the community!
How does it work?
Participants buy a $10 ticket to the event. $5 covers the cost of soup, crackers, and water, and $5 goes into a collection
to fund a community improvement project. After dinner, participants work in groups to generate ideas, and at the end
of the night, everyone will vote on the projects that they would like to see get funded. One project will be funded from
the money raised by the event, and a second project will be funded with up to a $300 grant from CanDo! Last year’s
Charlotte Soup grants helped fund Community Sing and Pass it On. Previous winners include Charlotte Christmas and
Art of Charlotte
