How can I get involved with Vallejo SOUP?
There are many ways to get involved:
Attend the Next SOUP
Join us for the Next Vallejo SOUP on July 19th at 6pm. This SOUP will feature the Vallejo Naval and Historical Museum, a local artist’s work, and community beautification projects. We look forward to a tasty potluck, lively conversations, and democracy in action as we vote to fund our favorite projects. Everyone is welcome at SOUP, at whatever price they can afford. Pay-what-you-can to attend as any donation (suggested $5-20) will help fund community projects in Vallejo.
Bring a Potluck Dish to Share
SOUP is a potluck style meal. Please bring some food to share – your donations are greatly appreciated. Anything from soup, salad, dessert, to your favorite meal. If you bring a dish you receive 60 seconds to present to the audience on ANYTHING from the recipe to a song and dance to an idea to project in Vallejo.
Volunteer During the Event
We can always use another pair of hands to manage the event day logistics. We can use your help for just about anything from welcoming guests, to taking photos, to posting on social media, to setting or cleaning up, to heating or serving food, you name it.
Submit a Project Proposal
SOUP is a great way to raise money, build community support and get connections to local resources that can help you carry out your project. The next SOUP will feature projects focused on beautification of Vallejo. Recognizing that beauty is often “in the eye of the beholder”, we are defining the topic broadly to include the beauty of nature, our built environment, the arts and people.This might include public art, restoration, urban greening, clean up, etc. If you have questions please contact us. Proposal submissions close on June 19th at 11:59pm.
Share your Artwork at SOUP
Every SOUP Features an Artist. This is an opportunity to share your work, tell your story and expose the Vallejo community to the Arts. Proposal submissions close on June 19th at 11:59pm.
Host Vallejo SOUP at Your Venue
Every SOUP feature a unique venue in Vallejo. Why Not Yours? SOUP is a great way to showcase your venue and its programming while empowering community projects in Vallejo. We are looking for venues throughout Vallejo that can accommodate 70 to 150 people for a potluck meal. In return for donating your space we offer you the opportunity to address the SOUP participants about your offerings and programs and we will be sure to promote your generosity on our website and social media.
Donate Food from Your Restaurant
We would love to feature your cuisine at our next SOUP. Donating a dish is a great way to promote your business while supporting community projects in Vallejo. If you bring a dish you receive 60 seconds to present to the community about ANYTHING.
