Local Girl Scout Earns Gold Award

Jackie Lim, left, of Girl Scout Troop 31417 of Alameda, received her Gold Award on Jan 5 — the highest award that can be earned in Girl Scouts. At present, about 6 percent of all Girl Scouts earn a Gold Award. Lim worked on her “Cooking with Kids” project over many weeks during the summer of 2019 for Alameda Point Collaborative residents. She hosted a series of interactive cooking classes to help encourage healthy eating. Each cooking class featured one or more recipes she created that used ingredients available at the Food Bank and the Farm2Market.
