Soup is a big deal at Aurora Waldorf School in West Falls. Not just because it's made by a real chef, Chef Heather Forrester, but because the delicious homemade soup is the reason Aurora Waldorf School is able to have a one-of-a-kind lunch program.

It began six years ago when Chef Heather was asked to come in and make some soup for students at the school. There was no lunch program at the time.

Her soup was so good they decided to sell it. The soup was a hit.

According to Chef Heather, "We started selling quarts and within the first year we had enough to fund the entire lunch program."

The school doesn't take any government subsidies. That allows them to use all fresh ingredients and to create a lunch menu that does not rely on processed food. Once a week Chef Heather fires up the soup pots and makes enough to feed 125 students with enough left over to sell at $7.00 per quart.

The favorite is chicken noodle. You can find more information about the program and the soup at their website.
