The Legend of the Stone Soup Project


There is a legend that tells of a woman who visits a village suffering from plague and famine, whose residents are fearful and distrustful and who hoard their meager supplies, not able or willing to pool together.

The newcomer sets up a soup pot filled with water and only a single stone in the village square and begins cooking the "soup", commenting on how delicious it smells, and attracting the interest of people in the square.

Eventually, one villager comes forward with a cabbage, and then another with some carrots; the town butcher finds a few scraps of beef to pitch in, more folks arrive with contributions, and soon there is a large pot of delicious soup for all the people to enjoy.

The lesson, of course, is that when we all give a little, a lot can be accomplished.

That story is the basis of the Stone Soup Project.
