2021 Girl Scout Cookies

It's that time of year. Girl Scout cookies are now on sale.

Girl Scouts in eastern Iowa and western Illinois have kicked off the 2021 Girl Scout Cookie season during a challenging time when many Girl Scouts are selling in creative, socially distant and contact-free ways to keep themselves and their customers safe.

Even in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, girls are adapting their sales methods to share the joy of Girl Scout Cookies through the largest girl-led entrepreneurship program — including taking contact-free pickup and delivery orders through a new national collaboration with Grubhub.

Additionally, GSUSA is making online cookie ordering available nationwide on Feb. 1 so consumers who don’t know a Girl Scout can still purchase cookies from a local troop for direct shipment to their homes or donation to local military and first responders.

Consumers  in the Quad-Cities can order Girl Scout Cookies for pickup or delivery on or the Grubhub app on select weekends in February and March.

How to safely purchase Girl Scout cookies this season

Locally, Girl Scout Cookie season runs until March 14, 2021. Consumers can support Girl Scouts by purchasing cookies in a few different ways:

• If you know a registered Girl Scout, reach out to her to find out how she’s selling cookies in ways that meet local and state safety protocols.

• If you don’t know a Girl Scout, visit, text COOKIES to 59618, or use the official Girl Scout Cookie Finder app for free on iOS or Android devices to find socially distant or contact-free cookie booths if they are available in your area.

• Visit to order via contact-free delivery from Grubhub in February and March.

Traditional cookie flavors are $5/package and the specialty gluten-free Toffee-tastic® cookies are $6/package.
