What is it? Big Lick SOUP (Supporting Outstanding Urban Projects) is a micro-grant event partnered with a community meal. Everyone in the Roanoke community is invited and asked to make a small donation at the door. Once there, we’ll hear four pitches for community projects.
What kinds of projects? Anything that has a positive community impact is a possibility. After hearing the pitches, everyone will eat a delicious meal and vote on which project they like best. The project with the most votes will get all of the money raised at the door to do their project.
Project submission are due Friday October 14 and can be submitted online by clicking on the following link: http://www.biglicksoup.org/apply/
