Cedar Rapids, IA - The Cedar Rapids Kernels and Goodwill have partnered to bring our fans a delicious new product being made right here in the Heartland. Goodwill Great Cookies™ will be sold at all remaining Cedar Rapids Roughriders games (starting March 15th) and all Cedar Rapids Kernels games this season. 

These huge, monster cookies are baked fresh from scratch by veterans in the Heartland and delivered by veterans. This program allows homeless and disadvantaged veterans job training and skill development to help them overcome barriers to independence. So when you buy a cookie at the Roughriders and Kernels, you will truly "Eat a Cookie, Save a Life."
