Dignity/Seattle Does Spuds

Event Date

On Tuesday, October 16, four Dignity/Seattle members together with almost a dozen volunteers from other organizations sorted through several tons of potatoes to rescue over 7100 pounds of perfectly edible spuds.  Also recovered were a few oddly shaped spuds that would unlikely be found in a grocery store. The potatoes were boxed, weighed, stacked on pallets, and staged for an early morning pickup for distribution to approximately 275 food banks in Western Washington. We hope you can join us for our next Food Lifeline volunteer evening on Tuesday, December 4th.
