It's Girl Scout Cookie season! You may have noticed on your most recent grocery run that something feels different this year: Girl Scouts aren't welcoming you from their booths with your favorite Girl Scout Cookies. Don't worry because you can still satisfy those cookie cravings! This year, in-person cookie sales have moved online to help keep customers, families, and Girl Scouts safe. In true Girl Scout style, they're finding ways to adapt and make sure anyone can still get their beloved Thin Mints, Tag-a-longs, Samoas—whichever is your favorite! Even sweeter, every purchase of cookies supports Girl Scouts to engage in life-changing experiences, take action in their communities, and give back to the causes they're most passionate about while they learn essential life skills every step of the way.
How to order your cookies
It's easy to order your favorite cookies online from Girl Scouts you know through their Digital Cookie storefronts.

Learning now to set up for a lifetime of success
Your purchase of Girl Scout cookies makes a direct impact in the community by fueling the ambitions of young people all year long through valuable programs and experiences, ranging from emergency preparedness to creating fabric mask tutorials to offering mental health resources and communication tips for Girl Scouts and families. By participating in the Cookie Program, these entrepreneurial go-getters discover important business and life skills, including how to adapt and be flexible during these challenging times. They're also learning goal setting, decision making, money management, cooperation, and business ethics to set them up for success. In fact, Girl Scouts are much more likely to participate in money management activities compared to non-Girl Scouts (65% vs. 36%). The Girl Scout Cookie Program is the largest girl-led business in the world—Girl Scouts sell 200 million boxes of cookies worth nearly $800 million every year, and more than half of all female entrepreneurs are Girl Scout alums!
Since Girl Scouts USA was founded in 1912, millions of Girl Scouts have been active in their communities while learning to grow into the bold and brave leaders who will make the world a better place today and in the future. Help all Girl Scouts achieve their dreams by supporting the Girl Scout Cookie Program and get your cookies too! The young people who need us today are the leaders we'll need tomorrow.
It's incredibly easy to support your local Girl Scouts this year. The most challenging part will be deciding which boxes of cookies to get, so get them all!
