Local Girl Scouts are joining up with dairy farm families to support Idaho Foodbank for the second straight year.

Buy a box of Girl Scout cookies between now and March 17 and donate it to the Idaho Foodbank through the Scouts’ Cookies from the Heart program. And Idaho dairy farm families will make a donation to help the Idaho Foodbank purchase milk to go with those cookies

Idaho dairy farm families are partnering with the Girl Scouts of Silver Sage, which oversees Girl Scout troops in southern Idaho. They will donate a dollar for every box donated to the Cookies from the Heart program, giving customers an opportunity to augment the impact of their charitable contribution.

Over the three years the Cookies from the Heart program has added up to 23,621 boxes of cookies and more than $33,000 for milk purchases.

“Milk is one of the most requested but least available items at food banks,” said Cindy Miller with Dairy West. “Yet dollar for dollar it’s one of the most nutrient-packed items a family can have on the table, providing protein, calcium and eight other key nutrients.”

If you’re wondering what’s new, that would be the Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookie, which boasts caramel, semi-sweet chocolate chips and a hint of sea salt to capitalize on salty caramel, which is all the rage.

It’s gluten-free.

All Girl Scout cookie purchases support girls and the mission of Girl Scouts—to build girls of courage, confidence and character bent on making the world a better place.

BY THE NUMBERS:

Girls Scouts of Silver Sage Council serves more than 4,000 girls throughout southern Idaho, including the Wood River Valley. It also serves parts of northern Nevada and eastern Oregon. The program involves 2,300 volunteer troop leaders.

The Idaho Foodbank, a nonprofit organization founded in 1984, has distributed more than 170 million pounds of food from warehouses in Boise, Lewiston and Pocatello. During the last fiscal year the foodbank distributed enough food to provide more than 15.5 million meals to Idaho families through pantries like the local Hunger Coalition, schools, senior centers and shelters.
