Our Place Drop-in Center in Bellows Falls has reconfigured its signature Empty Bowl fundraiser into a do-it-yourself event. Instead of gathering to share soup donated by local chefs and restaurants, bid in live and silent auctions, and take home a handcrafted bowl, would-be attendees are being invited to buy a ticket and a bowl and pay to add items to an imaginary soup, all by mail.

The Stone Soup Supper is based on the story of a hungry stranger who shows up in a village and asks for food. When the wary villagers tell him they have little food, he starts a soup with just a stone… then musing on how good it would be with a cabbage and a few other vegetables added. With each person adding one item, they soon have a nutritious meal for everyone.

The yearly event is one of the food pantry’s major fundraising events, so its loss will take a big bite out of the non-profit’s operating budget just when the numbers of those seeking groceries and meals are rising.

Anyone wishing to take part in the Stone Soup Supper can contact Our Place at (802) 463-2217, ourplace@sover.net or through its Facebook page.

Our Place is a daytime shelter and food pantry serving families in Rockingham and the surrounding area.
