How to Turn Stone Soup Into Nearly 8,000 Meals

The Brethren of McKinley Masonic Lodge No. 307 in Brookfield recently hosted their annual Stone Soup event as a fundraiser that provides money to Feeding America. 

Pictured above, Brother Nick Nicklosovich presents a check to Feeding America’s representative.

Brother Nick and a good friend and Brother of his who flies in from Arizona every year coordinate and run the event. The gentleman from Arizona goes by “Peppermint Jim”. 

The Wisconsin Masonic Foundation matches what is made by the soup sales through their “Acts of Kindness” program. Additionally, whatever soup isn’t sold is given to a local meal center. 

Each dollar given to Feeding America is equivalent to 7 meals – so the check for $1,140 provided to the organization will feed a lot of people and provide nearly 8,000 meals!!

Many thanks to Brother Nick, “Peppermint Jim” and all the Brethren of McKinley Lodge for their commitment to serving their community – they make all Masons proud!
