Mags&Munchies

Everyone knows about Girl Scout Cookies, but you might not know about the magazines and delicious nuts, snacks, and chocolates that are part of our Mags&Munchies program.

Because it’s an easy and fun way for girls to earn patches and rewards and troops to get funds, this program gives our Girl Scout troops a chance to experience new and exciting adventures without having to wait until the Girl Scouts Cookie season. Many troops even consider it a chance to “practice” for Cookie Season.

All of the products sold make great stocking stuffers and holiday gifts for family, friends, teachers, neighbors, and anyone else on your list, so this program comes at a perfect time!

Why Should You Support the Mags&Munchies Program?

The GSNC Mags&Munchies program is a “learn and earn” program. Girl Scout troops can earn 13% to 18% in proceeds for all of their magazine, nut, and snack sales.

Most importantly, by running their own business girls will learn a lifetime of skills, including:

  • Goal Setting
  • Decision Making
  • Money Management
  • People Skills
  • Business Ethics

Support your local Girl Scout and her troop by purchasing nuts, snacks, and/or magazines through our Mags&Munchies program. Both online and in-person order taking begin on October 1, 2021. In-person order taking ends on November 7, 2021, and online order taking ends on November 10, 2021.
