Girls and families are given options when participating in the Girl
Scout Cookie Program so they can determine the pathway that is right
for them. Check out all of the ways girls can participate in this
year’s cookie sales here.
Troops have a range of booth-hosting options—from virtual
to differing levels of in-person—to support a comfortable, safe
experience for all girls. Girls and volunteers who exhibit signs of
illness may not participate in booth and door-to-door sales and
deliveries. Girls who are engaging in in-person or booth sales
must have a COVID-19
waiver submitted to their troop leader.
Digital Cookie: With the help of her parent/caregiver, a
Girl Scout sets up Digital Cookie to sell online. Orders
opened January 3, in-person contactless deliveries will
begin February 18. This is a digital pathway where money is not
exchanged. Girls may drop cookies on front porches or engage in
other contactless forms of cookie delivery. Customers may also opt
to purchase and donate cookies to first responders and essential
workers through our Community Cookie program through their Digital
Cookie online purchases.
Starting January 3, and based on comfort level, a girl can begin
selling in person. Girls may sell door-to-door, to family and
friends, teammates, and beyond, asking her network of contacts to
support her goals. Girls must wear face coverings, follow proper
hand sanitizing procedures, and maintain social distancing when
visiting homes in her community.
Sales: Girls and their families can work with their Troop Cookie
Manager to set up and signup for family booth sales
starting February 18 as a new way to reach more customers. My Family
Booth Sales can be at location secured by Council or Troop (TCM will
need to sign family up via eBudde) OR can be outside the home on
private property. Girls and adults must wear a mask covering the nose
and mouth and maintain social distance. Additionally, hand sanitizer
should be available for girls, adults and
customers. Parents/caregivers and Girl Scouts hosting a My
Family Sales Booth must be from the same household. No more than two
adults and three Girl Scouts can be present. No non-member siblings
Troop and Council Booth
Sales: Starting February 18, girls can participate in Troop Booth
Sales and Council Booth Sales with local partners like grocery stores
and more. Council Booth Sale locations are secured by Girl Scouts
of Hawaii and troops can sign up for slots in eBudde, our Cookie
Program software. Girls and adults must wear a mask covering the nose
and mouth and maintain social distance. Some vendors may have
additional requirements to which girls will be expected to adhere in
accordance with our partner agreements. Additionally, hand sanitizer
should be available for girls, adults and customers. When hosting a
Troop Booth, be sure to follow all state and county COVID-19 safety
guidelines. No non-member siblings are permitted. Some vendor partners
may have additional limitations on the number of girls and adults that
are allowed to be present at booth sales.

Additional Safety Guidelines and Expectations
Contactless payments: We highly encourage girls and
troops to accept contactless payments. Girls/troops can do this
using the Digital Cookie mobile app. As a reminder, girls must have
a Digital Cookie site setup in order to use the mobile app.
Contactless Transactions Through Digital Cookies here.
Contactless Cookie Delivery: Girls and volunteers will
need to provide contactless cookie delivery to their
customers. This means porch drop-offs for in-person girl deliveries
(send customers a text when a safe distance away to verify they
received their order) or placing of cookies into the back of a
customer’s vehicle instead of being handed directly to the customer.
Follow All Safety Guidelines: Girls and volunteers must
follow all local and GSH Council guidance. This includes wearing
safety masks at all booth locations. Businesses may have specific
safety requirements (like the number of girls, cleaning protocols)
that girls and troops must follow. These instructions will be
included in eBudde.
