Gunnison Country Food Pantry & Soup Stone
The history of the soup stone is that of hope and hunger. A family must subsist on stones and water because it has no food. Instead, the family feeds on love. Gunnison Country Food Pantry believes that one of the ways we show love is with food. The 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.
