How Much Do Local Girl Scouts Earn on Cookies? About 50¢ a Box
Serious Eats community member Zchef2Know gives some great insight into the behind-the-scenes revenues of Girl Scout cookies. If the numbers are accurate (and it appears they are), a local troop makes about 50¢ a box. In that case, Zchef2Know says, you'd best help them by buying one or two boxes and donating the value of any additional boxes directly to the troop.
