Calling All Soup Lovers: Soup’s On! January 31st

Soup's On is a one-day luncheon with three sittings — 11 a.m., noon, 1 p.m. — that raises scholarship funds for high school graduates.

It is a partnership between the St. Kevin's social justice committee, Niagara College, and high school and business culinary programs.

Over the years, committee organizers have presented about $50,000 to high school students who strive to make positive change through social justice and charity activities for their post-secondary studies.

Creating soups for the Friday, Jan. 31, event at St. Kevin's church are Stephanie the Lunch Lady, serving bacon cheeseburger soup; Blessed Trinity High School, serving carrot, ginger and coconut soup; Ecole secondaire Franco-Niagara serving traditional french pea soup and french onion soup; Eastdale Secondary School, serving vegetable beef soup; Niagara College Canadian Food and Wine Institute, serving Scottish butter, bean and bacon soup, and French Canadian tourtière soup; and Notre Dame College School serving Stracciatella.
