Once again, this fall, Steel Valley Middle School Student Government is fundraising for our general account using Happy Valley Soup Company. I enjoyed this soup at the Shaker Woods Festival a few years back and thought it was a great way to kick off the “cooler” fall season. Corn Chowder and Stuffed Pepper are my personal favorites, but I am excited to try potato this year too. They are $9 each, and we received 50% profit.
