Stone Soup Event

Saturday, October 7th, 2017 - 2nd Annual Stone Soup Event

United Way of Northern Ozaukee will be hosting their second Annual Stone Soup Event. 
 
The date is Saturday, October 7th, 2017 
St. Peters United Church of Christ
166 W. Dekora Street
Saukville, WI 53080 
Starting at 10 - Noon 
 
Each person will bring an ingredient and participate in making meals for Family Sharing, Saukville Food Pantry, and Advocates to distribute to their clients.  After the work is done, we will all gather and break bread together.
 
Last year, we had over 125 volunteers who cut up vegetables, prepared 40 gallons of soup, and packaged 100 meals for those who needed it the most.  The dinner consisted of a simple meal of homemade soup, rolls and desserts. We packaged meals for Family Sharing of Ozaukee and then fed all of the volunteers who participated in the event. 
 
The food drive and packing event was a family friendly, hands on experience that had widespread community participation. It was so successful that we decided to make this an annual event. We are hoping that we can count on you to help by collecting food and participating in the event. Help us spread the word and make a difference in our community by encouraging your family, friends to participate in the fun family friendly day of caring. Our shopping list includes the following: vegetables onions, leeks, tomatoes, celery, carrots, basil, corn on the cob, squash, zucchini, and yellow squash.
We are also collecting non-perishable items that will enhance the soup. We are looking for:
  1. Canned non-perishables items, pasta (rotini and bowtie), canned tomatoes, tomato paste, rice, Parmesan cheese, crackers, corn, and vegetable and chicken stock
  2. Homemade desserts to package and distribute
  3. Healthy After School Snacks
If you or your family/friends are looking for a fun, group project, this is a great opportunity to come together to help fight hunger. In just two hours of your time, your small contributions will add up to a better life for all.  Your children will benefit from volunteering, too! They will readily understand why they are preparing a meal for someone who is hungry, and the activity may lead to long-term volunteering. For more information on how you can donate food, and or volunteer for the event. Sign up online at Coming Together to Fight Hunger.
