Alicia Allen with Girl Scouts Heart of Central California says the cookies are the primary fund-raiser for the organization.
"There's definitely more to cookies than what's in the box. The Girl Scouts that sell them learn so many essential skills like goal-setting and decision-making and people skills," she says.
More than a million boxes of cookies were distributed during a similar event in Sacramento on Saturday.
About $5.4 million worth of cookies will be for sale between Merced and Yuba City this year.
