The evening will work like this: Attendees can donate a suggested amount of money at the door and eat soup provided by SAME Cafe. After dinner, representatives from Revision International, Growhaus and Slow Food Denver will talk about what they do and then pitch three newer organizations that they support. “It’s kind of like a live Kickstarter campaign. They’re each going to pitch them, and we’re all going to listen and then vote on which one we like the most,” says Warm Cookies founder Evan Weissman. He’ll then dole out the money that was collected at the door “in proportion to who gets what votes. At the end of the night, everyone will have heard about six organizations working in different ways in food justice.”
The soup party begins at 6 p.m. at the McNichols Building, 144 West Colfax Avenue. Cookies and milk will be provided. For more information and to RSVP, visit warmcookiesoftherevolution.org.
