Sunday Soup is a mini-grant funding model initiated by InCUBATE in Chicago. On designated Sundays, Grand Rapidians gather to eat soup and vote on proposals. $5 buys you admittance and a vote, the entire proceeds of the meal will go to fund the proposal with the most votes. Soup is provided.
Grants have ranged between $75 and $500 dollars, depending on how many people are present.
Sunday Soup GR is a program of the Division Avenue Arts Collective (DAAC). It reflects the memory of Ben Schaafsma (1982 - 2008), a founding member of both the DAAC and InCUBATE and initiater of the Sunday Soup model
