Girl Scout Troop 20616

 


We are a Junior Girl Scout Troop in Lincoln NE, consisting of 10 girls who desire to make a difference in our community. Our troop took a behind the scenes tour of the Food Bank of Lincoln, where we learned just how great the need is right here in own backyard. After the tour, we brainstormed ways that our troop can help. We decided we wanted to create ceramic bowls that could be auctioned off, and 100% of the proceeds from the auction donated to the Food Bank of Lincoln. The bowls are "empty" as a way to showcase hunger and the fact that roughly 12.33% of our State is food insecure (meaning they miss one or more meals). 1 in 8 people in Nebraska are struggling with hunger. 1 in 6 children in Nebraska are food insecure. Due to their cooperation w/other food banks around the country, the Food Bank of Lincoln is able to buy in extreme bulk prices with the monetary donations they receive, thus cash donations can feed MORE people than the same amount of food donations can. By auctioning off our bowls, we hope to make a difference in our community.

We hope you will consider placing a "bid" on one or more of our bowls. Bidding will end at midnight 12/1/2017.

Thank you for your consideration!
