Gunnison Country Food Pantry and Soup Stone
The story of the soup stone is one of hope and hunger. A family must subsist on stones and water because they don’t have food. Instead, the family is feeding themselves with love. Gunnison Country Food Pantry believes that one of the ways we show love is with food. Soup Stone is a benefit to help those in need. Please join us in supporting our neighbors by sending a donation to PO Box 7077, Gunnison 81230, or online at GunnisonCountryFoodPantry.org. No one in our valley should go hungry.
