It was a delicious way to support the community.

On Jan. 25, guests lined up outside the doors of St. Kevin’s Church in Welland to attend the popular Soups On! event held at St. Kevin’s Church in Welland. The event was held in support of St. Kevin Food Bank for its Social Justice Scholarship.

Soups were made and served by students from the Canadian Food and Wine Institute, as well as Notre Dame College School, Lakeshore Catholic, Eastdale, and Blessed Trinity Catholic.

The CFWI offered three varieties at the event: Cream of Wild Mushroom Soup, A Warming Bowl of Butternut Squash Soup, and Tandoori Chicken Soup.

The event was attended by president Dan Patterson, who addressed the crowd.

Volunteer organizer Joe Barkovich thanked Bob Demers, David Gibson and Johanna Cotte of the CFWI for their involvement with the 11th annual event and for providing three soups this year to compensate for a shortfall.

The next Soups On! event will be held on Jan. 31, 2014.
