Saint Louis University will host an event as part of the St. Louis Soup Across the Delmar Divide series at 3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 17, at Fresh Gatherings Café in the Allied Health Professions Building. Cost is $10 and participants are asked to RSVP online for the event.
The St. Louis Soup Across the Delmar Divide is part of an ongoing collaboration between The Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts, the Missouri History Museum and the Anti-Defamation League.
These institutions are holding events to help fund projects that remedy issues highlighted by the 2012 news segment "Crossing a St. Louis Street That Divides Communities," produced by BBC reporter Franz Strasser. The programs are inspired by Sloup, a monthly soup dinner that supports grassroots projects in St. Louis.
The Pulitzer, the Missouri History Museum and ADL review and choose proposals that are presented at each public Sloup event. The selected proposals are assessed for their ability to bridge racial and socio-economic divides in the city from the standpoint of design, history and service learning.
St. Louis Soup event guests donate $10 to listen to the proposals for community projects with refreshments and soup provided. At the end of the evening, St. Louis Soup guests cast their vote for a favorite project. All of the proceeds fund one of the submitted proposals. The St. Louis Beacon will cover the progress of the winning proposal over the next year.
