Girl Scouts and Kroger Fight Hunger
One Cookie at a Time
Girl Scouts of Western Ohio is teaming up with ALL Kroger booth locations to help fight hunger and put an end to waste. Kroger's plan is to end hunger in their communities and eliminate waste in their company by 2025. To learn more about Kroger's efforts, visit Kroger.
Every troop that participates in a Kroger booth, in all regions throughout our council, are required to ask each customer if they would like to purchase cookies to be donated to Cookies for a Cause in support of food banks in our communities including Northwestern Ohio Food Bank, The Food Bank of Dayton and Freestore Food Bank.
All cookie donations made at Kroger booths will benefit Cookies for a Cause, so no cookies will physically need to be delivered to your regional office or set aside at the Kroger location - council will handle those donation deliveries at the end of the program for you. Simply allocate the donation purchase under the "CFAC" column in eBudde and that's it! Collecting donations for food banks is the main purpose of the Kroger cookie booth as it helps support Kroger's Zero Hunger | Zero Waste initiative, however customers may still be encouraged to purchase cookies for their own personal consumption as well.
Use the promotional Kroger flier included at the back section of your Cookie Book during your scheduled Kroger booth times to highlight this partnership.
For more detailed information, download the Kroger Booth Procedures, these guidelines are also attached to the Kroger timeslots in eBudde.
