Truckee Tahoe Community Announcements

Named after Stone Soup, the Grimm Brothers fable about cooperation amid scarcity, a local group has cooked up an opportunity for Truckee residents to break bread together each Sunday evening at the Truckee Recreation Center.According to Stone Soups organizers, all are welcome at the soup and bread community dinners. Supported by local nonprofit service organizations, the Sunday suppers are offered in the spirit of community. Everyone is encouraged to attend. Come if you cant afford to donate and come if you can afford to pitch in.I thought we could do more than a soup kitchen, explains Deb Ryan, one of the events organizers. This is a way to build and sustain our community during a rough winter. We are looking to feed those who are hungry and to give us all a greater sense of community. Our motto is giving when we can, receiving when we need.Stone Soup is slated for Sunday evenings, March 1 through May 17, from 4:30 to 7 p.m. at the Truckee Donner Recreation andamp; Park Districts Community Center, 10046 Church St., Truckee.Project MANA, Slow Food, Lake Tahoe and Truckee Donner Parks and Recreation Department sponsor the soup nights. Additionally, top local chefs are lending their culinary expertise to the Stone Soup suppers.For more information, contact Kaili Sanchez of Project MANA in Truckee at 582-4079.
