We believe that meaningful work and whole, fresh foods are two essential components of a healthy life. Stone Soup Catering combines the two. We train and hire program participants from the Saint John Learning Exchange, providing them a good living wage to prepare a varied delicious menu of healthy meals for our community clientele. All profits from Stone Soup are used to support the no-fee education and employment services of the Learning Exchange and our healthy snack program for all program participants: Fuel the Brain.
Our name, Stone Soup, evokes the legend of weary travelers with nothing but a pot of water and a stone. When they asked villagers for food out-right, the response was “No”, but when they began to ask for contributions of specific ingredients to make a soup to be shared, they accumulated everything they needed to prepare a wonderful, hearty meal for the whole village. We believe that our achievements are indelibly linked to our talented, generous community and their willingness to contribute to, and share in, our success.
