Fight Hunger Patch Project

 All Levels

The Fight Hunger Patch Project is an opportunity for Girl Scouts of all ages to learn about hunger as a contemporary issue. Girls will be encouraged to take on activities that engage, educate, and empower them to fight hunger in their community. Fight Hunger is a progressive patch program; girls may participate at every level of their Girl Scouting experience. Girls complete a Hunger Workshop and activities in three focus areas: 

  • Nutrition: Earning this patch requires girls to learn about healthy eating and the relationship between hunger and health.
  • Food Waste: This patch promotes an understanding of food loss and food waste, helping scouts determine what they can do at an individual/small group level as opposed to what needs to change systematically.
  • Choices: To earn this patch, girls must examine the difficult choices facing those who are food insecure and the many ways hunger is multifaceted.
