Spaghetti Dinner PatchQuick View
There are so many reasons for your girls to prepare a spaghetti dinner together. Some might decide it’s a great way to fulfill a badge requirement. Other troops might want to reach out to a soup kitchen or shelter to ask if they could prepare a spaghetti dinner for those in need. Many troops participate in meal trains for a sister scout family or community member who needs their support for a while. Spaghetti dinners make a great fundraiser too. Of course sometimes the girls just want to enjoy a meal together just for fun. When serving food to the public remember to check your council regarding the food safety guidelines they require. And of course, you’ll want to remember the patch! The Spaghetti Dinner patch from MakingFriends®.com will make a great reminder of your fun or service.

Mobile Food Pantry PatchQuick View
Food pantries are a great resource for many but some lack the transportation to get to their local pantry making mobile food pantries a great way to serve those in need. Mobile food pantries with fast and flexible delivery can also provide a better opportunity for perishable foods to be distributed. Your Girl Scouts can learn more about mobile food pantries serving those in or near your community and find out ways to assist. After their service, your girls will be proud to wear the Mobile Food Pantry patch.
