OUR BACKPACK PROGRAM is available during the COVID-19 school closure to South Whidbey youth who are in need of nutritious food. Families can sign up as many children as they have in their household and lunches will be delivered to homes on Thursdays. Pick-up from the Good Cheer Food Bank is also an option.
Lunches are extra large and include:
2 sandwiches (or burritos)
2 pieces of fresh fruit
A variety of fresh vegetables (may include cherry tomatoes, carrot and celery sticks, snap peas, broccoli)
2 servings of string cheese
Please note that due to COVID-19, Good Cheer has closed their thrift store locations. Sack lunches are available upon request at the Good Cheer Food Bank.
For teens & others needing supplemental nutrition, we have two SELF-SERVE refrigerators stocked with FREE, grab and go sack lunches, located inside Good Cheer's two South Whidbey Thrift Stores.
