Girl scouts deliver food to Main Street Food Pantry

FORTVILLE — Local Girl Scouts recently donated food to Main Street Food Pantry, which is operated by Fortville First United Methodist Church. The Girl Scouts placed a $200 grocery order, donated by Peapod and handpicked by the girls on, to be delivered to the food pantry of the troop’s choosing.

In total, six food pantries will benefit from a $1,600 contribution from Peapod.

By completing the Kids Give Back program, participating Girl Scouts will earn the Staying Fit Badge.

The Kids Give Back program teaches students about how many people in the local area don’t have access to healthy food on a daily basis. It also includes lessons on what people need in their diets, covering the basics about proteins, fats, sugar and more to give students a perspective on what to look for when they shop for food.
