Getting ready to kickstart our next exciting project!
Sharing an exciting personal (Niveda) update, which more importantly also relates to 4G4C's upcoming "Reduce Food Wastage in Local Restaurants" project.
I received my Girl Scout Gold Award last Thursday! This is the highest honor awarded to only 5% of all Girl Scouts.

Few highlights of my Gold Award project:
Project Title - Reduce Food Wastage in Local McDonald's Restaurants
Partners included - McDonald's, Food Donation Connection, and StreetLight
Project Achievements - since December 2021:
1,129 lbs of unused restaurant food items donated to feed the hungry
94 lbs weight equivalent of greenhouse methane gas emissions reduced from landfill waste
Over $2,000 availed in tax deductions by donor restaurants
Find full details of this long-term and sustainable project here.
We now hope to expand this project through 4Girls 4Change by partnering with local mom-and-pop restaurants starting this Fall.
