MK Soup is a social enterprise which supports social enterprises- with soup!
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.
However, the Soup project is much more than just a crowdfunder for social projects. It offers you the opportunity to meet other people who would like to make a difference, raises money in a very organic way and emphasis what brings us all together: Good food! Recently the BBC has written a great article about Sheffield Soup and we are determined to make MK Soup as much of a success. We are currently looking for people who would like to raise money for their projects so make sure to register!
SOUP takes place every two months. If you are interested in attending please sign up to our newsletter and we will keep you updated! If you are a project manager, submit your project above and we will let you know a week before the event whether you have been selected to speak on the evening. You get 10 minutes for your pitch and can hand our flyers on the night, too. We can only ever select four projects so if we are not able to include you for our next event, we might be able to fit you in in the future! If you have any questions just get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org.
