SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- You can say this for the Girl Scouts of San Diego: They are one bunch of tough cookies.
It’s Girl Scout Cookie season and they are taking steps to ensure that even a pandemic does not come between you and your Thin Mints. Or your Samoas. Or that extra box of Tagalongs, in all their chocolate and peanut buttery goodness.
For health and safety reasons, you're not going to see Girl Scouts standing outside grocery stores or knocking on your front door.
The organization has teamed up with food delivery service Grub Hub. Starting now through February 28, Grubhub is giving San Diegans a free package of cookies with a cookie order of any size.
You can search Girl Scouts on the Grub Hub app and follow the steps to order or visit their website.
Flavors this year include the favorites – Thin Mints, Tagalongs, Samoas and Dos-Si-Dos, as well as the more recent additions of Lemon-Ups, S’mores and the gluten-free option, Toffee-tastics.
Local Girl Scout troops will be in charge of tracking and packing up orders. Throughout the Cookie Program, girls are gaining skills such as goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics.
All proceeds from the cookie sale stay locally and help with troop activities, including experiences in the great outdoors, STEM learning, travel and community service.
The Girl Scouts Cookie season ends March 21.
