Getting the right food to the right people at the right time.
Named after the classic folktale that shows the power of cooperation in the face of scarcity, Stone Soup Cleveland connects people with produce, product and prepared food – reducing waste and creating healthy meals for the people who need them most.
While poverty and homelessness contribute to hunger issues in our city, food insecurity – being without reliable access to a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food – is far more common, wide-reaching and difficult to address. Meanwhile, 40% of the produce grown in the Unites States ends up in our landfills instead of our dinner tables. Stone Soup CLE bridges that gap.
