“Our Stone Soup Too Luncheon was a great success, we raised $1,125 and collected several bins of food for our local food pantries. I want to thank the community members who attended, and our many caring sponsors who donated the food for our luncheon: Mimi’s, Blue Moon Grill, Tavern on the Lock, and The Foursome Diner for providing our soups; Dunkin’ Donuts for the ‘Boxes of Joe’; C’s Farms & Davis Bros. for our salad fixings; Hudson Dairy who provided bottled water; Red Baron who provided the rolls; Kathy’s Cakes, Joe’s Corner Market, Price Chopper, and Springside at Seneca Hill for donating our delicious desserts; and Struppler’s Shurfine Market for table arrangements featuring canned soups that were donated to the food pantries following the luncheon. I would also like to thank the Holy Trinity Church for hosting the event; the Fulton Lions Club for their donation of $500; the Fulton Sunrise Rotary for their donation of $100; the City of Fulton, Fulton YMCA, and Walmart Supercenter in Granby for hosting food drives; Sugar Funeral Home of Fulton and Sugar & Scanlon Funeral Home of Oswego for sponsoring rides and lunch for residents of Fulton Mill Apartments; and of course our hard working volunteers and committee members, who helped to make our ‘Stone Soup Too’ Luncheon a success,” said Lois Luber, resource development director for the United Way of Greater Oswego County.
All proceeds from the event, along with the food donations will be donated to food pantries throughout Oswego County.
