Girl Scouts “Hunger Awareness & Nutrition Fair”


Clare Kelly, a Senior Girl Scout in Troop 50270 and a sophomore at Bishop Diego High School, is organizing a Hunger Awareness and Nutrition Fair on Saturday, November 21st from 11:00 am – 2:00 pm at the Foodbank of Santa Barbara for her Girl Scout Gold Award project. The Gold Award is the highest award in Girl Scouts and equivalent to the Boy Scout Eagle Award. Attendees at the Hunger Awareness and Nutrition Fair will learn about healthy nutrition and hunger in Santa Barbara County. There will be nutrition demonstrations and games, crafts, tours of the Foodbank, a balloon twister, a washable tattoo artist, and a face painter. In addition, a delicious and healthy lunch will be provided by Santa Barbara Unified School District, thanks to Nancy Weiss, Director of Food Services. Finally, you can make your own smoothie for dessert on a bike blender powered by your own two legs. Admission is one pound of nutritious food, such as peanut butter, pasta, or beans, but please feel free to bring as much as you like!

Lunch is limited to the first 300 Fair attendees. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Michelle Kelly, Leader of Troop 50270, at
