Tuesday, March 20, the United Way of Greater Oswego County will hold its fourth annual Stone Soup Too Luncheon in Fulton.

It will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Holy Trinity Parish, 309 Buffalo St., Fulton.

“This is our fourth year for our Stone Soup Too luncheon,” said Lois Luber, resource development director for the United Way of Greater Oswego County. “It is the effort of our volunteers and committee members and most importantly the strong support we receive from the community who return year after year to enjoy great food and fellowship that makes our Stone Soup Too luncheon such a success.”

To date a number of caring local businesses have come forward to donate the food and beverages necessary for the Stone Soup Luncheon.

The United Way is accepting donations per person to attend the luncheon. All proceeds from the luncheon will be used to support area food pantries.  Attendees are also encouraged to bring a donation of non-perishable food as the United Way will be collecting donations for area food pantries, including the Fulton and Oswego Salvation Army, Catholic Charities of Oswego County, Human Concerns, and the Oswego County Mental Health Association.

“Our food pantries are really feeling a strain this year and it is becoming especially challenging for them as they try to meet the demand for food subsidy throughout Oswego County,” added Luber. “The food collected, and the money raised at our Stone Soup Too Luncheon will be greatly appreciated.”

Those unable to attend the luncheon but would like to donate food items may call Helen Hoefer at 598-3980.
