WELLAND – Soup’s On! welcomed a new community partner on Friday.
The Lunch Lady, Stephanie Menicanin, joined soup prep teams from Blessed Trinity, Eastdale , Confederation, Lakeshore Catholic and Notre Dame secondary schools and Niagara College’s Canadian Food and Wine Institute at the serving table, where an array of nine delicious soups awaited diners, some of them self-described soup connoisseurs.
Her local small business is part of a school lunch program based in Canada. It provides “simple and healthy lunches that kids love”, offered both hot and cold. She is also choir director at St. Kevin.
The recipe for her soup, onion, ale and cheddar, is one that will appear on the Soup’s On! Facebook page ( Soup’s On – St. Kevin’s) over the next few days.
