Fulton, NY – United Way of Greater Oswego County will hold its 8th Annual Stone Soup Too Luncheon on April 14th at Holy Trinity Parish located at 309 Buffalo Street in Fulton. To date a number of caring local restaurants and businesses have come forward to donate the food and beverages necessary for the Stone Soup Too Luncheon.
“We’re putting together a great menu with plenty of delicious soups,” said United Way Resource Development Director Ali McGrath. “Blue Moon Grill, Tavern on the Lock, The Foursome Diner, and Mimi’s Drive will be providing a variety of homemade soups for our luncheon. Other menu items are being donated by C’s Farm Market and Beverage Center, Kathy’s Cakes and Specialty Treats, Joe’s Corner Market, Davis’ Brothers Meats, Springside at Seneca Hill, Dunkin Donuts (Fulton), Red Baron Pizza and Hudson Dairy.
