Girl Scout Make a Difference Day

Post by Lauren Strouse of the Food Bank Fairfield office: The Fairfield warehouse was filled with the sound of excited girls on Saturday, October 27th, during the Food Bank’s Girl Scout Make a Difference Day Event. One hundred and twenty girls between the ages of six and sixteen participated, accompanied by forty-six adults. They toured the warehouse, played Food Twister, crafted healthy lunch choices, and bagged 3654 pounds of oranges. Troops also donated 324 pounds of nonperishable food. Ten girls  from Vallejo Troops #20132 and #20133 and Vacaville Troops #20358 and #20361 , helped to plan and implement this event, including designing the Food Twister game and developing the craft activity.
