  • Girl Scouts of Chesapeake Bay is celebrating the 11th anniversary of Operation Taste of Home.
    The program was formed when the council was asked from the community and Girl Scout troops about how they could help make a difference for armed forces stationed overseas. During the last nine years, the program has expanded to include organizations across the Delmarva Peninsula, including food banks and pantries, blood banks, cancer centers and youth programs with more than 300,000 boxes donated.
    Last year, more than 27,000 boxes of Operation Taste oh Home cookies were purchased and donated to 12 military support organizations, including the USO at Dover Air Force base, Steel Magnolia Ministries, Operation We Care and the Military Support Affinity Group, as well as nearly 100 local charities across the Delmarva Peninsula.
    Operation Taste of Home not only helps soldiers and local agencies, but it also supports local Girl Scout Troops by funding important programs for girls living in Delaware and the Eastern Shores of Maryland and Virginia
    Customers may buy cookies for $4 per box and designate their purchase to the program.
