Greenwich Senior Girl Scout Troop 50231 is helping community members dealing with food insecurity create healthy dishes for themselves and their families by way of a new cookbook.

Partnering with food and clothing pantry Neighbor to Neighbor, the girls will offer a booklet to Neighbor to Neighbor clients detailing how they can use the food they receive from the organization to put together easy, appetizing and nutritious meals.

“We were so excited when the girls brought the idea for this project to us,” Neighbor to Neighbor Executive Director Nancy Coughlin said. “It is a perfect fit and I am impressed with what a fabulous job these young women did. Our clients will truly enjoy trying out new, healthy recipes that can be made with the food they receive from our food pantry.”

The project will help the Girl Scouts of troop 50231 work towards a Gold Award, the highest possible honor for Girl Scouts. The award comes second of course to the goal of improving the health and well-being of the community.

An initial 400 copies of the booklet will be handed out through the center. To contribute time, food or clothing to Neighbor-to-Neighbor, visit their website at N-to-n.org.
