Rockaway Summer is proud to present Rock Soup, a new community meal supporting creative projects in the Rockaway Peninsula. Please join us this Saturday December 12th for our first official soup, share a meal with your neighbors and vote for your favorite community-based project. Below is some info, but feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
HOW IT WORKS
Every month, starting December 12th, the community is invited to come together to share a meal, enjoy art, learn about creative projects happening in Rockaway and back the one they think benefits the peninsula most.
At every event, for a donation of their choice, attendees will receive soup cooked by local volunteers, hear from four presentations ranging from art, urban agriculture, social justice, social entrepreneurship, education, technology and more, and vote on which project to fund with the money raised from the dinner.
Anyone is welcome to attend the dinner, but all projects must benefit Rockaway.
WHO WE ARE
Current board members are Giovanna Maselli (Founder of Rockaway Summer and HIVE), Adam Wiesehan (Architect), Isabella Scott (Founder of Herb & Dye Rockaway), Kalin Callaghan (Organizer at Rockaway Wildfire), and Suzanne Riggs (Educator and Community Organizer).
SUPPORT ROCK SOUP
ROCK SOUP is a project by the community for the community, and is run entirely on donations by volunteers. ROCK SOUP welcomes the support of individuals, businesses and organizations alike.
