It’s official Girl Scout Cookie season is here in Oregon and SW Washington, and for those of us who have been snacking on these classic cookies since we were kids. In a year where many of us aren’t going to the office or the store, meaning we don’t have co-workers trying to sell us cookies for their kids, and it also means that the tables full of entrepreneurially-minded youngsters selling Samoas and Peanut Butter Patties outside of the grocery store. So, what’s someone with an intense craving for Thin Mints or the new Toast-Yay! cookie to do? This year, you can order Girl Scout Cookies online, even if you don’t know a Girl Scout.
This year, you can simply use the Girl Scout Cookie Finder to find your local Girl Scout troop, then buy cookies online from them. The cookies will be shipped right to your door, and the Girl Scouts in your neighborhood will still be the ones benefitting from the sale. it’s a win for everyone!
This isn’t the only way that the Girl Scouts are adapting during the pandemic. This year, in certain locations you can also order Girl Scout Cookies for delivery through Grubhub. Grubhub is waiving the fees it usually charges restaurants using its services, so the money from your orders goes directly to the Girl Scouts (don’t forget to tip your driver generously, though – they’re risking their health to bring precious cookies your way, after all!). You’ll even get free delivery on cookie orders of $15 or more through February 14th, and if your anything like me when it comes to cookies, it wont be hard to hit that $15.00 minimum charge
