Locavore lunch with the Girl Scouts

Combine local food, Girl Scouts and a church potluck on Sunday at Wesley United Methodist Church. 

Girl Scout Troop 3260 is hosting a locavore potluck lunch at 12:15 p.m. Sunday at the church, 3715 Rea Road. All you have to bring is a dish to share that's made from locally grown or produced food. 

While the lunch is aimed at church members, a spokesperson for the church said they're willing to  open it to the public. "We'll see what happens," she said Thursday. "I'd never even heard of a locavore before this."

So excited to see this.
Our Girl Scout Troop has been working on the Lacavore Patch for several months at our meetings.
The steps they are taking include: exploring the benefits and challenges of going local, finding local food sources, cooking simple dishes showcasing local ingredients, creating a recipe with local ingredients, and having a local cooking challenge...our pot luck!
The troop is looking forward to sharing what they have learned with our church sponsor, Wesley.

Glad I could help, Anon. A locavore badge? How cool is that?
