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!

During this year’s Stone Soup we were able to meet our fundraising goal, raising nearly $30,000. Thank you, thank you, thank you to our volunteers, supporters and the hundreds of Winnipeggers who came down to MB Hydro Place to make a donation and try some great soups.

A big congratulations is also owed to our two Silver Ladle soup award winners:Colourful Soup

  • Fern Kirouac, chef at Inferno’s Bistro, winner of the People’s Choice Silver Ladle for his delightful Chicken Ragu with Cashew Kale Chips.
  • Jess Young, chef at Buffalo Stone Café, winner of the Judges’ Choice Silver Ladle for her satisfying Solyanka Hearty with Smoked Meat.
