It’s Girl Scout cookie time! You can pre-order now, and the yummy treats will soon be available in metro Atlanta.
And of course, there are some changes this year, for safety reasons. In 2021, the Girl Scouts are selling cookies in socially distant and contact-free ways. This is just how the cookie crumbles this year.
The Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta have roughly 30,000 young entrepreneurs selling cookies in 13 metro counties, according to a press release. They’ll be offering up the goods via smartphone app, online ordering, drive-thru and virtual cookie booths, and no-contact delivery.
If you know a Girl Scout, reach out to her to see how she’s selling cookies this year.
You may also see parents of scouts posting about cookie orders on social media or in community groups like Next Door.
But if you don’t know a scouting family, read on to find out about all the ways you can order Girl Scout Cookies this year.

How to find Girl Scout Cookies in 2021
Order Girl Scout Cookies Online
If you know a Girl Scout, you can order from her personalized online site using the Digital Cookie platform, now in its fifth year! You’ll just need to get her individual link.
Additionally, Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) is launching a nationwide cookie website. Beginning Monday, February 1st, you can visit the site to place an order directly from a local scout troop, for direct shipment. (You can also donate cookies to first responders.)
Find a Girl Scout Cookie Booth
Girls Scouts are operating cookie booths. They are taking all precautions to limit contact, and some are even drive-thru booths.
You can find a cookie booth near you by using the Find Cookies tool — just put in your zip code. Note that it’s early in the season, so you may not come up with many dates and locations just yet.
Use the Mobile App
Use the app to find the cookie booth closest to you (including the sale’s time, date, and location), to locate your local Girl Scout council, and to access the complete listing of Girl Scout Cookies available across the United States and Puerto Rico.

Order for delivery through Grubhub
This is a new partnership in 2021, and Grubhub is waiving the usual fees so the Girl Scouts receive all the proceeds from cookie sales.
Make a minimum purchase of $15, and you won’t even pay a delivery fee.
The platform launches on February 1st in select markets. Will Atlanta be among them? We’ll report back when we know for sure. Right now, we know the partnership will be active in Alabama and North Carolina.
You can check this website by zip code to see Grubhub delivery options near you, starting in February.
