Stone Soup 2017

Join us for our fifth annual Stone Soup fundraiser!

Wednesday, March 22, 2017

Manitoba Hydro Place Gallery, 360 Portage Avenue, Winnipeg

11:15am to 1:15pm

Come taste some amazing soups by our featured chefs and helps us celebrate the community coming together in support of the health and well-being of school children and youth.

Make a donation (minimum $10). Donations of $20 and over are eligible for a tax receipt.

  • Pick up three vouchers for your soup samples.
  • Get one ballot to vote for your favourite soup.
  • Enjoy bread, water, and fruit provided by our chefs and sponsors.

You can make a donation at the event or online here.

Your donation helps provide children and teens in Manitoba schools with healthy meals and snacks every day through non-profit nutrition programs.  Every nutrition program is a safe space where kids can find encouragement, get to know friendly adults, learn about nutrition, gain food skills and volunteer credits, and come together with other kids of various ages and backgrounds.

How much should I donate?

  • $100 ensures that one student won’t lose energy and focus mid-morning or mid-afternoon because of hunger.
    A healthy snack will be on the way!
  • $75 introduces one student to the healthy habit of eating one fruit or vegetable snack every day.
  • $50 helps provide lunch for one student for one month.
  • $20 means breakfast for one child for one month.

Consider making a larger gift—$200 provides one student with breakfast every day.
