Stone Soup Cafe to lead 2018 Free Harvest Supper’s 14th annual event

The return of the Free Harvest Supper in 2017 was such a resounding success that Stone Soup Cafe has committed to continuing this wonderful community event. This year’s meal will be held on Sunday, August 26, 2018. The meal is held on the Greenfield Town Common. All are welcome!

Kirsten Levitt, executive chef & director of Stone Soup Cafe has teamed with Hawks & Reed Performing Arts Center to present an afternoon and evening full of delicious local foods and entertainment. After the meal there will be a pay-what-you-can dance party at the Hawks and Reed Ballroom from 7 – 10 pm.

A core group of organizers are helping to get all the logistics and structures of the meal in place – and that number will swell to 100 volunteers on the day of the event! We plan on 800 + people attending. If you’d like to volunteer please contact Shirley Holmes via email at

We ask that you support the meal’s zero landfill goal by bringing your own plate, utensils, and napkins with you and then take them home to wash. Don’t worry if you forget them – we’ll have compostable supplies on hand just in case!

This is a 100% volunteer event! However there are many costs associated with providing a meal to 800 + community members. Donations to offset costs and to support the Franklin County Hunger Task Force will be gratefully received both before and at the supper. Checks should be written to Stone Soup Cafe c/o All Souls Church, PO Box 542, Greenfield, MA 01302. Please note Free Harvest Supper in the memo line.

We are so excited for this year’s event – we hope you can join us and have a great evening on the green in Greenfield.
