What is Stone Soup Network?

Stone Soup Network (SSN) began in Toronto’s vibrant west end (Junction-High Park) and has expanded to Ottawa. SSN builds connections by sharing community resources with individuals and families who need them. SSN manages a database of donated items from local merchants, like grocery and pharmacy gift cards, oil changes, books and toys.Our local Stone Soups collaborate with an amazing team of non-profit partners. These “social connectors”, people like social workers, shelter support staff, religious leaders and health care providers help make the connection between the donations and the people who need them most. Since 2016, over $250,000 in donated goods and services have been shared with over 3,000 people struggling with poverty.

Our goal is to create long-term impact by helping to build healthier, more socially cohesive communities.

The Stone Soup Network garners support from local businesses who operate in their local communities. It’s easy for them to bring their products to their consumers because their consumers are nearby. By cutting down on these miles, people are reducing the environmental impact of transportation. 

"Getting vouchers has been of great help for my family, because I had a chance to get organic products, and eat healthier”

“I saw my child laughing!" The summer camp "was truly an experience that my child desperately needed in order to heal. Thank you Stone Soup!”
