At Crestwood, we have a long tradition of making Stone Soup with our fall garden harvest and contributions from families, and then sharing it with the school community. This year, we will be cleaning and chopping root vegetables on Monday, October 16 and preparing soup at the school on the morning of Tuesday, October 17. Every student will have the opportunity to taste the soup Tuesday afternoon.
Making Stone Soup is a true community effort. We need DONATIONS OF CUT UP VEGETABLES* AND SEASONINGS** to make the soup as delicious as possible! Send your donation with your child to school MONDAY or TUESDAY MORNING OCTOBER 16/17 so it can be included in the soup.
We could also use volunteers Monday afternoon from 12-2pm to help 5th grade classes with vegetable prep, and Tuesday afternoon to help serve the soup. We are currently pretty well covered for Monday morning.
*We have a bumper crop of carrots, potatoes, garlic and kale from the Crestwood gardens this fall, so please avoid sending more of these items.
**In order to be sensitive to dietary restrictions, please send vegetarian items only (no chicken or beef bullion, no canned beans with pork, etc.)
