Description of Organization
The Stone Soup Cafe was created with the support of Academy Award winning actor and anti-hunger activist Jeff Bridges. It continues Zen Peacemakers’ tradition of holistic community-building based on bearing witness. Through decades of inspiration from founder Bernie Glassman, the Zen Peacemakers have incubated several successful, ongoing programs around the world. The Café provided wholesome meals and a diverse, supportive community to a growing group of approximately 60-110 people every Saturday including many low-income families and homeless individuals.
