Looking for Girl Scout Cookies?   

Due to COVID-19 Girl Scouts are not permitted to do in-person delivery of cookies or in-person cookie booths at this time.  However, you can order cookies online from your favorite Bedford troop by visiting the Bedford Girl Scouts online cookie ordering website: 

All cookies will be directly shipped (and if you order 6 or more boxes you save 50% on shipping). You may also use the website to donate cookies to the Boston Food Bank and Hanscom AFB.   

Your support helps the girls raise funds to support their activities, higher awards, travel, and the Bedford Hanscom Girl Scout Scholarship fund!
