St. Louis, MO – February 9, 2021 – The 2021 Girl Scout Cookie Booth season kicks off this weekend with drive-thru booths, neighborhood pop-up booths, traditional storefront booths, virtual booths and our contact-free pickup and delivery services with Grubhub.
This year, girls are selling in creative, socially distant, and contact-free ways to keep themselves and their customers safe. Cookie Booths are a critical component of the girl-led entrepreneurial program. With these activities, Girl Scouts learn important values like planning, marketing, teamwork, payment systems and customer service.
Through March 7, there are a few new ways to purchase Girl Scout cookies:
- Consumers can visit a Cookie Booth by accessing the Girl Scout
Cookie Finder at
girlscouts.org/cookies or download the Girl
Scout Cookie Finder app for IOS or Android mobile devices. Simply
enter a zip code and find the nearest booth location. All Cookie
Booths will be following current community COVID guidelines, like
social distancing, face masks and participation limits.
- In select markets, consumers can also order Girl Scout Cookies for pickup or delivery on Grubhub.com or the Grubhub app. A hands-on experience in managing e-commerce, local Girl Scouts will track and fulfill orders, manage inventory, and more, all using Grubhub’s back-end technology. As always, the proceeds benefit the troop and Council while providing another innovative way to safely run the cookie program virtually. Grubhub is offering free delivery on Girl Scout Cookie orders through February 14 with a minimum purchase of $15.
Also, Girl Scouts is making it possible for all consumers nationwide who don’t already know a Girl Scout to purchase Girl Scout Cookies online for shipment to their doors or local charity. Customers can enter their zip code into the Girl Scout Cookie Finder to locate a local troop and order using our Digital Cookie platform. Each donation of $5 provides one package of cookies to organizations that serve military personnel and veterans, those in need and those who help our community stay safe. This additional contact-free method supports local girls while keeping their safety and skill building top of mind.
