Beyond the cookies, empowerment:
While some people still think of them as just cookies, campfires, and friendship bracelets, Girl Scouts are so much more. When a girl is a Girl Scout, she's also a G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)(tm). These traits define girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. This is the Girl Scout DNA, and every day, girls are taking the lead like a Girl Scout!
Girl Scouts are big thinkers, groundbreakers, and role models. Girl Scouts design robots, start garage bands, and improve their communities-and yes, they sell the best cookies on the planet.
During our event, we'll be having a Girl Scout Cookie takeover at Fork Food Lab. Fork Food Lab member chefs will be preparing delicious and fun Girl Scout Cookie concoctions for everyone to try while they network and learn about how the Girl Scouts smash leadership stereotypes. We'll also be selling cookies at the event and all profits will benefit Girl Scouts of Maine and make future events like this one possible.
