One dish + one vote + one passionate community = Salida Soup.
Who will we help next?

Salida Soup has supported numerous projects from people just like you!
Bring your awesome idea to the Soup and let us help fund it. We have assisted Salida-centric programs pitched from area schools, municipal agencies & nonprofits, athletes, artists, and youth organizations, just to name a few. It’s the best-feeling five-dollar-dinner you’ll ever have!


Salida Soup is a monthly community-based potluck where participants, through this microgranting dinner, assist a variety of projects in the Upper Arkansas River Valley.

Join us each month for the evolution of fundraising. A potluck item and a $5 donation makes you eligible to vote on the evening’s presentations. As a diner, you will hear 3 five-minute pitches from community members who need funding for projects that are beneficial to the community. Enjoy the best $5 dinner in town with your friends, then choose the winning proposal to receive the evenings donations.

Salida Soup is held at the SteamPlant Event Center Ballroom at 220 West Sackett Avenue in Salida, Colorado. Salida Soup is brought to you through a partnership with the Salida Creative District.

We encourage you to bring your own place setting (plate, bowl, & utensils) - it helps reduce the amount of time our volunteers spend in the kitchen washing dishes.
