As part of their requirements to earn the Girl Scout Gold Award, Troop 2255 learned about food and food waste as part of their “SOW What?” Journey.
Community Food Share is an organization based in Louisville which works to fight hunger and food waste in our communities. They provide fresh, nutritious food to those in need, while also increasing the environmental health of the community by working to redistribute food instead of throwing it out. You can help them by donating food (any amount helps) or volunteering, either individually or with a group. Volunteering is a very fun experience for ages five and up. Girl Scout Troop 2255 recently volunteered at Community Food Share and enjoyed it immensely. They highly recommend it to others.
