Presenting the new recipe booklets to Amy Pollesch of the Ripon Community Food Pantry are, from left, Girl Scouts Grace Retzlaff, Jenna Konrad, Ariana Arnetveit, Emma Iverson. Also pictured is Eric Feider of Good Impressions, who donated a large portion of the printing costs. Not pictured is Ripon Girl Scout London Keeler.

The girls spent months a “Sow What” Journey, learning about food issues: how and where food is grown, processed, distributed, consumed — and sometimes wasted. When learning about the Ripon Community Food Pantry’s increase in clients during the pandemic, the girls were inspired to create a recipe book that includes new ways to prepare the typical food items received from the food pantry.

The Girl Scouts thank Eric Feider of Good Impressions, Inc., for donating a large portion of the printing costs, and Amy Arnetveit of Fusion Creative for her design help and mentoring.
