Operation Taste of Home

Girl Scouts have a long tradition of making the world a better place through community service. Operation Taste of Home encourages girls and the community to make a difference by donating Girl Scout Cookies to service members all over the world and to local charities.

Since 2003, you have helped Girl Scouts of the Chesapeake Bay send 432,890 boxes of Girl Scout Cookies to men and women in the Armed Forces and numerous charities across the Delmarva Peninsula. In 2017, we sent 33,792 boxes of Girl Scout Cookies to our Armed Forces and local charities. 

How can you help?

It’s easy! You can purchase cookies from any troop or cookie booth and designate your purchase for Operation Taste of Home. Because you will not receive cookies you purchase, your contribution is tax deductible. Donations still benefit Girl Scouts, as girls and troops receive full credit towards rewards and troop proceeds for all cookies sold through the program.

During our Fall Product Program, you can donate magazine vouchers to military personnel serving overseas. Any nut vouchers donated will be converted into honey roasted peanuts and distributed to those in need through local food banks.

For more information on how to get involved, email our Product Program Specialist or call 302-456-7150, ext. 371.
