"Take A Bite Out of Hunger" Girl Scout Patch Project

Girl Scouts of NY/PENN Pathways and the Food Bank of the Southern Tier have partnered to develop a special “Take a Bite Out of Hunger” patch project for Girl Scout Daisies through Girl Scout Ambassadors. The Hunger patch project will help girls learn about hunger as a community issue. They will be encouraged to take action on issues that engage, educate and empower them to fight the root causes of hunger in their community. They will also be encouraged to experience volunteering as an important contribution that they can make throughout their lives.

Girls may work in one of three focus areas: Hunger, Nutrition or Gardening. It is strongly recommended that troops focus on only one area at a time (for example, do all their Nutrition activities, then do all their Hunger activities, etc.)  Listed below are some of the Girl Scout Outcomes (benefits to girls) associated with this patch project:

Discover Outcome #2: Girls develop positive values. Girls form their beliefs and values based on the Girl Scout Promise and Law, learn to consider ethical aspects of situations, and are committed to social justice and community service and action.

Discover Outcome #3: Girls gain practical life skills – and practice healthy living. Girls gain skills that prepare them for a positive, healthy, and independent future.

Connect Outcome #2: Girls promote cooperation and team-building. Girls recognize the value of working together and learn to make decisions that affect the whole group.
