Four members of Moraga Girl Scout Troop 33206 recently completed a 50-hour service project, earning the Silver Award, the second highest award a Girl Scout can earn. They made five complete solar ovens that will help families in Afghanistan cook their food without the use of wood, which is expensive and produces smoke that can harm their health and the environment. The Solar Cookers can heat up to 350° F and can cook just about anything that can be made in a gas or electric oven. With the help of Trust in Education, a Lafayette-based organization, the cookers will be shipped and distributed to families in need.
