Downtown SOUP is seeking volunteers to help plan, execute, and sustain a neighborhood SOUP serving Downtown, Midtown, New Center, Eastern Market, and surrounding communities. If you’re interested in volunteer opportunities, please email

How it works:
Attendees make a suggested donation of $5 and learn about four projects that benefit the Downtown community. Over a potluck-style dinner, attendees vote on which project they think benefits the community the most. The winner goes home with all of the money raised at the door to carry out their project. Downtown residents and supporters connect, share ideas, and community resources. Also, each dinner also features a local artist!
