• Melbourne SOUP

    Good Causes, Good Food, Good People.

Melbourne SOUP brings neighbours together to support local change.

We help individuals and community groups organise events where locals back ideas and projects that positively impact their neighbourhood. SOUP events involve hearing about good causes, enjoying good food and interacting with good people.

So you’re interested in having a SOUP event near you? Here’s how you can help to make that a reality.

  • If you have a suitable venue, you could host a SOUP night
  • Bake, boil or fry (no judgement if it tastes delicious) a sweet treat for attendees to enjoy
  • Are you an entertainer? We’re always looking for live performances from local legends
  • Promoting our event on socials

In return we can offer you the opportunity to speak for a minute at a SOUP event about your own project or organisation.


Do you have an idea, project, initiative or event that has a benefit to your local community?
