EPB&B gives a gift to Stone Soup in recognition of their fifth anniversary

As a Portland based insurance agency, one of our core values is giving back to the local area non profits that provide help and hope to those in need in our Portland Community. Stone Soup is one of the organizations we have been proud to support since their inception five years ago. This week we were honored to be a part of their Celebrating Five Years of Portland Good and Good for Portland in recognition of providing five years of workforce development & hands-on culinary expertise to people at risk of houselessness. Guests of the event got to sample items off their new catering menu while learning about some of the exciting new changes in their culinary program in the year ahead. And of course, never one to arrive empty handed, the team at EPB&B brought along a gift of $5,000 in appreciation for all that Stone Soup does for our community.

Stone Soup empowers individuals to feed communities.  Stone Soup trains in workforce development and hands on culinary expertise for people who might otherwise be facing homelessness. Their participants learn the skills necessary to obtain gainful employment by making tasty, healthy and fresh meals for shelter guests, all within a trauma-informed environment.  Their work has expanded over the past five years to include a retail soup line, catering services, and community meals for local county and private shelters, day centers, and schools. 

Congratulations to Stone Soup and looking forward to the next five years!
