The Fresh Food for Lunch program of the South Whidbey School District provides school farm and garden grown vegetables to the school cafeterias, managed by Chartwells. There are three gardens currently growing for Chartwells: the School Farm, the Langley Middle School Garden, and the Big Acre (a collaboration with the Good Cheer Food Bank). Fresh Food for Lunch was launched on May 23rd, 2014 and has been supplying fresh produce in season, including lettuce, kale, spinach, cucumbers, carrots, broccoli, cabbage, bok choi, peas, beans, cherry and slicing tomatoes, peppers, scallions, potatoes, zucchini and winter squash to the Chartwells cafeterias since then.
