Soup Grant----A Real Cool Idea!

What is SoupGrant Lansing?

Our concept is simple: Fund micro-grants in our city and gather members of the community for a healthy and delicious soup and bread meal.

Attendees should bring their own bowl, spoon, napkin and beverage (water will be provided).  If you forget a bowl or spoon there are some for a nominal fee. A donation of $5 is suggested to support the micro-grant program.

Each SGL dinner features a presentation of  two to three creative grant proposals. Every dinner guest who donates $5 can vote for the proposal they would like to see funded. Those donations become the grant that is awarded to the winning project that very same night.

Any creative/innovative project that is focused on making a positive impact in Lansing is eligible for a grant.

    I should probably say: I am bringing hot and sour soup.

    After meeting, Heather and I decided that as a show of thanks to our generous friends at the Mid-Michigan Food Club, we'd like to offer folks who bring food to pass a free vote the night of SoupGrant in the future! We were extremely grateful for everyone last time - the name for the even should've been SoupFeast not SoupGrant. :-) We're expecting a great event this upcoming Thursday. We'll not only be voting on a local project to receive micro-grant funding, we'll be voting on a new logo! You can see the submissions that we'll be featuring at our website - http://soupgrantlansing.wordpress.com/

    Finally, gotta say sorry to Danielle for SGL landing on the same night as the Food Network event! I can't wait to hear about it - and to watch it! (And bummed we can't go!)

      We will have an event when the episode is finally on TV around June. So you will be able to see us feeding our faces! :)
