National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend is here!

Girl Scouts of Kentucky's Wilderness Road (GSKWR) and Girl Scouts of the USA are celebrating the event on February 19, 20, and 21.

Cookies will be available at booths at participating Kroger and Walmart locations.

Buyers can also take advantage of a buy-one-get-one cookie offer through Grubhub.

In Lexington and northern Kentucky, consumers can order for contactless pick-up or delivery here or through the Grubhub app from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. this weekend.

Any Kentucky or Cincinnatti buyer can also purchase cookies online through the Digital Cookie platform for direct shipment or donation to local organizations. Find a local troop to purchase from here.

“Our girls sold nearly 1.1 million boxes of cookies in 2020 and they learn critical financial literacy and entrepreneurship skills as a result,” Susan Douglas, CEO, Girl Scouts of Kentucky’s Wilderness Road, who was quoted in a press release from GSKWR, said. “By earning their own money through the cookie program, Kentucky Girl Scouts open the door to unlimited growth opportunities–– from camping and canoeing, to exploring space science and taking meaningful action to improve their communities.”
