The Girl Scouts Go Local With "Locavore" Badge

SL_Cook_FinalThe mission of the Girl Scouts is to "build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place," and in a nod to the local food movement, that now includes eating local. As part of a new program released October 1st to honor the organization's 100th anniversary, the Girl Scouts has launched a "Locavore" badge.

"All of our badges reflect what today’s girls said they wanted to know about -- girls are interested in what they eat and how it affects their health and the environment, so the Locavore badge gives them a chance to delve into those issues in their communities," said Alisha Niehaus, Executive Editor, Program Resources, in an email. "Plus, what’s more fun than making your own food, and truly knowing it from farm to table?"

How does one go about earning a Locavore badge? According to the Girl Scouts, five steps are required: "1. Explore the benefits and challenges of going local 2. Find your local food sources 3. Cook a simple dish showcasing local ingredients 4. Make a recipe with local ingredients 5. Try a local cooking challenge." Each of the steps includes specific challenges such as interviewing chefs who specialize in locally grown foods, taking a favorite recipe and making it local, or preparing a three-course meal based on local ingredients.

And, just in case the cynics among you think the Girl Scouts are just jumping on the bandwagon of the local food trend, Niehaus says that organization has a long history of eating locally. She notes that the Girl Scouts had a Canner badge way back in 1920, almost a century before food preservation got cool in Brooklyn.

Few things are impossible in themselves; and it is often for want of will, rather than of means, that man fails to succeed.

 

The smallest courtesies along the rough roads of life are like the little birds that sing to us all winter long, and make that season of ice and snow more endurable.
