FULTON, NY – United Way of Greater Oswego County will hold its eighth annual Stone Soup Too Luncheon on April 14 at Holy Trinity Parish, 309 Buffalo St.
To date, a number of caring local restaurants and businesses have come forward to donate the food and beverages necessary for the Stone Soup Too Luncheon.
“We’re putting together a great menu with plenty of delicious soups,” said United Way Resource Development Director Ali McGrath. “Blue Moon Grill, Tavern on the Lock, The Foursome Diner and Mimi’s will be providing a variety of homemade soups for our luncheon. Other menu items are being donated by C’s Farm Market and Beverage Center, Kathy’s Cakes and Specialty Treats, Joe’s Corner Market, Davis’ Brothers Meats, Springside at Seneca Hill, Dunkin Donuts (Fulton), Red Baron Pizza and Hudson Dairy. In addition, a donation from Tops Friendly Markets in Fulton will provide for centerpieces featuring cans of soup at each table.”
United Way’s Stone Soup Too luncheon serves as an important awareness drive of United Way’s impact area of ending hunger in Oswego County.
“Our community food pantries are feeling the strain of trying to meet the need for food subsidy in Oswego County. The Stone Soup Too luncheon will have a positive effect on their efforts as well as our impact area of ending hunger in Oswego County,” McGrath said.
United Way’s Stone Soup Too Luncheon is open to the public and will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
United Way will be accepting donations of $5 per person at the door and attendees are encouraged to please bring a donation of non-perishable food items.
All proceeds and food donations from the luncheon will be used to support area food pantries including Catholic Charities of Oswego County, the Salvation Army of Oswego County, and the Hannibal Resource Center Food Pantry.
Those unable to attend the luncheon but would like to donate food items, may contact Tim Archer at Catholic Charities of Oswego County, 315-598-3980 for information on where to drop off non-perishable food donations throughout Oswego County.
