What Is the Best Way to Transport Soup for Lunch?

Good Questions

Q:  I will be student teaching this fall, and packing healthy, satisfying lunches every single day is a huge challenge for me!

My plan is to make a big pot of soup every week, but I need a good way to transport it, preferably without the need to reheat at school.

Are there any good packing-and-traveling options for soup?

Editor: Rebecca, glass canning jars are definitely a good option; they're inexpensive and easy to clean. But since you don't want to reheat at work, a thermos is probably a better idea.

Readers, any other good tips or advice for transporting soup?
