Potato Commission, Second Harvest passing out 100,000 pounds of potatoes Wednesday
SPOKANE, Wash. — The Washington State Potato Commission and Second Harvest are teaming up to pass out 100,000 pounds of processed potatoes on Wednesday.
The potatoes were set to be turned into French fries, tater tots and hash brown patties. They have been washed and bagged, but have not been sorted for size and quality.
“These are not like the pretty potatoes you see in the grocery stores, but they still taste great and are highly nutritious,” the potato commission said in a Facebook post.
People in need of food can pick up the potatoes at the Spokane County Interstate Fairgrounds on Wednesday starting at 10 a.m.
