Join Stone Soup Café for the 17th Annual Harvest Supper Celebration on Sunday, August 22, 4-6pm on the Greenfield Town Common! The Harvest Supper is always FREE and open to everyone in the community. Swing by for delicious food, music, raffle items, merchandise, and a “Really Really Free Market.” People are encouraged to bring their own plates, cups, and utensils to cut down on the waste produced at the event.
This year the event will take place in-person, with live music, and places for people to sit and eat together. Last year’s Harvest Supper was a ‘to-go” format to accommodate the restrictions from the pandemic. To protect our community, masks will still be strongly encouraged at this year’s event whenever possible.
Stone Soup is looking for over 100 volunteers to help make the supper a success. You can sign up for a volunteer shift on Stone Soup’s website: www.thestonesoupcafe.org.
The Harvest Supper is an annual event celebrating local food, farms, and community. Every August, the town comes together to share the farmers’ bountiful harvest with the community. Farmers and talented chefs donate their time and produce to create an amazing meal that is served to 800+ people every year.
The Free Harvest Supper was started in 2005 by Juanita Nelson, an ardent pacifist, war tax resister, civil rights activist, and supporter of local, organic agriculture. Nelson encouraged people to grow their own food and to support local farming as part of the local economy, which she said was an expression of nonviolence.
Stone Soup Cafe is grateful to Hawks and Reed for helping to coordinate event logistics once again this year. Music will also be organized by Ben Goldsher of Hawks and Reed. We’re excited to collaborate with The People’s Pint, Hope & Olive, and other local restaurants in preparing the meal!
