Based on the Detroit Soup model, MK Soup is a meeting place for people who would like to make the world a better place- whether through food, community action, sustainability or another idea.
MK Soup is organised by the MK Food Revolution and the MK Christian Foundation.
On the night of MK Soup you buy a £5 ticket for a bowl of soup and in return, you get to listen to four people pitch their community ideas. At the end of the night, the crowd votes for its favourite idea and the winner takes the profit of the night. Two months later, the group then hears back about what has been achieved with the money.
If you are a project manager, submit your project and they will let you know a week before the event on January 26th whether you have been selected to speak on the evening. You get 10 minutes for your pitch and can hand out flyers on the night, too.
It’s a very friendly event and even if you aren’t successful at winning the funding, a great way to network and recruit new supporters and volunteers!
