March 10 – 16 is National Girl Scout week. Nationally the Girl Scouts of USA has a membership of over 3.2 million girls and adults, and there are over 59 million women in the US today that are Girl Scout alumnae – that’s a lot of girl power! The organization started on March 12, 1912 with its first meeting for 18 girls in Savannah, Georgia. The Girl Scouts was created to help all girls develop physically, mentally and spiritually. Those principles still hold true plus the organization has continued to inspire young girls by being willing to tackle important social issues and to foster a commitment to diversity and inclusiveness.
At Cravings Gourmet Popcorn we celebrate girls and the Girl Scouts. We remind all local troop leaders that our Community Popcorn Project is open to your troop. To learn more about how Cravings can help go to http://www.facebook.com/CravingsCommunityPopcornProject
Plus, this year Cravings owner, Chad Jordan, is participating in the local annual Girl Scout Cookie Bake-off event as a celebrity chef. The event is Thursday April 18th and we would love it if you would come out and support us and the Girl Scouts. Our challenge to participate is to create a dessert using Girl Scout Cookies and of course…popcorn. To learn more about attending the fundraising event go to the Girl Scout Heart of Michigan website.
Cravings Gourmet Popcorn is located in Old Town Lansing, the hippest area of Lansing, Michigan. Cravings Gourmet Popcorn can be purchased online and shipped to anywhere nationwide.
