Thanks for another wonderful Stone Soup!

Thanks to everyone who was able to make it out to Stone Soup 2018, and to all those who otherwise supported our annual fundraiser through donations and word-of-mouth support! We had a great time, and over $20,000 was raised for our breakfast, snack and lunch programs in Manitoba schools – wow! You can read all about it here.

We’ll see you next year!
