Thanks to the fine blog The Food Section for alerting us to the fact that the Girl Scouts added a locavore badge earlier this month. (It looks a lot like our very own business card, which maybe isn’t surprising.) According to a piece in USA Today, the badges are the first major upgrade since 1987 and a part of a modernizing of the group as they get ready for next year’s 100-year-anniversary. Though as Josh Friedland of The Food Section points out, like adult locavores, the scouts are going back in time as much as they’re going forward.

Better still, DiFara pizzas will star at the Manhattan premier of the flick, and will be specially delivered to Canal Street next Sunday by Film Fest staffers for a party the FFF is calling Di Fara Pizza Lunch.
