Stone Soup PDX


Stone Soup empowers people experiencing barriers to employment to achieve self-reliance through training for careers in the foodservice industry.

Bottom Line for Portland

Stone Soup’s 12-week, trauma-aware culinary job training program works with individuals experiencing housing insecurity. Our participants learn the skills necessary to obtain gainful employment and prepare delicious, fresh meals for day center and shelter guests during their hands-on training.


“They took my mind off what was going on in my life and they allowed me to focus on something else…They helped me get through that really rough time in my life. If I hadn’t gone to Stone Soup, I wouldn’t be on Earth today. They helped me get off drugs and alcohol.” David, Stone Soup Graduate

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Stone Soup prides itself on being a welcoming place to people of all backgrounds. We can’t only make our own space welcoming, but also need to pursue justice. We realize that true inclusion takes work on behalf of leadership and staff. Thus we treat Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI) with the reverence and respect of one of our top strategic priorities.

Justice - Stone Soup will continue to actively pursue this justice within our community.

Equity - Ensure our staff and participants are feeling valued.

Diversity - Hire and recruit a diverse and multiculturally sensitive staff and board of directors.

Inclusion - Promote fairness by listening to, and taking into consideration all points of view.
