      About OmahaSOUPOmaha SOUP is a crowd-funding dinner celebrating and supporting grassroots projects improving the Omaha community. For at least a $5 donation (and optional potluck side dish), you'll receive a bowl and a voting ballot. We'll invite you to help yourself to a buffet of homemade food and sit down to break bread with other attendees.  Next, you'll turn your attention to 4 presenters as they pitch their idea to you and you'll have an opportunity to ask questions and offer feedback like a "Shark"!. After that, you'll vote for your favorite idea! Then we'll collect the votes and tally them up. While votes are tallied, we'll get an update from last year's Omaha SOUP winner! The idea with the most votes will go home with the money collected at the door - that simple! Program Schedule 6:00 - Doors open & break bread 6:30 - Presention start 7:15 - Tally votes & 2018 SOUP winner update 7:30 - Outlook Nebraska tours begin (optional) Wanna bring a side?

More about OmahaSOUP:THE ONLY TWO RULES OF SOUP1 Presenters can’t use technology to present their ideas.2 The idea has be to be focused on impacting Omaha.WHAT WE WANT TO DO• Empower residents• Help create jobs• Allow people to establish new relationships and networks• Promote action and change• Foster critical dialogue• Instill neighborhood pride• Provide a deeper understanding of democracyGOALThe winner goes home with the money raised at the door. Attendees have engaged and participated alongside other people who share in the desire for a better Omaha. Diners have shared resources and ideas with all presenters. Connections have been made. Conversations have been had. People have felt empowered.SOUP PHILOSOPHYSOUP is a place for people to gather and to feel safe. Omaha SOUP is not the granter of the funds. Our job is to plan a dinner that creates an environment where participants can vote on what project wins the money from door. Each individual who walks through the door is agreeing to grant the money to the project they think is most deserving through democracy and critical conversation. We then ask past winners to come back in a few months to share with the community what they did with the money.That’s it.
