Sat­isfy your taste buds at Soup’s On!

The Welland Tribune - - Local -

Noth­ing beats a cold, dreary win­ter day like a com­fort­ing, pip­ing hot bowl of soup or two.

And on Fri­day, Jan. 25, peo­ple who come out for the 17th an­nual Soup’s On! will have their choice of but­ter­nut squash; Thai co­conut pump­kin; veg­etable pis­tou; French-Cana­dian pea soup; borscht with shred­ded beef; sweet potato, maple and chest­nut; Mex­i­can po­zole; or loaded baked potato soup to sat­isfy their taste buds.

The sec­ondary school schol- ar­ship fundraiser serves sam­ples dur­ing three sit­tings — 11 a.m., noon, 1 p.m. — in St. Kevin Parish Hall on Ni­a­gara Street in Wel­land.

Tick­ets are $10 each and have re­mained un­changed since the event started. Tick­ets are avail­able at the church of­fice Mon­day through Fri­day 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., in the church foyer be­fore and after week­end masses or by ar­range­ment with ticket con­vener Bernie Barkovich at 905-735-3562.

Schol­ar­ships go to grad­u­at­ing stu­dents ac­tive in so­cial jus­tice projects at their schools and in the com­mu­nity. Last June $1,000 schol­ar­ships were awarded to four ap­pli­cants from École Se­condaire Catholique Jean-Vanier, Blessed Trin­ity, Notre Dame and E.L. Cross­ley Sec­ondary.

Over the years, so­cial jus­tice com­mit­tee or­ga­niz­ers have pre­sented more than $45,000 in schol­ar­ships.

Soups on this year’s menu will be pre­pared by culi­nary stu­dents from Ni­a­gara Col­lege Food and Wine In­sti­tute, Lakeshore Catholic High School, East­dale Sec­ondary, École Se­condaire Con­fédéra­tion, Blessed Trin­ity Catholic, Notre Dame Col­lege School and Stephanie the Lunch Lady.
