We are also collecting canned goods throughout the week as well for our pantry.

The week brings the community together to celebrate the mission of Urban Ministries and raise funds to meet the basic needs of life – food, shelter and medical care – for our neighbors in need.  Our friends at the Triangle Potters Guild will be with us once again, and their beautiful soup bowls and mugs will be available for purchase during Stone Soup lunch and dinner.  We will also have celebrity servers at our lunch event!
