Free Potatoes on May 20th!
posted about 1 month ago by BrendanKolding from West Seattle Support
Wednesday, 5/20/20, at 2 PM there will be a big Potato-Give-Away! 1,000 pounds of potatoes & onions are arriving in the West Seattle Junction: at the Eagles' parking lot right next to the West Seattle post office--on California Ave SW between Oregon & Genesee. You are invited to come get potatoes...&/or to help give them to others.
This invitation is to anyone who is low income and needs to stretch their food budget; this invitation also includes small-business restaurants struggling to survive, anyone cooking meals for others in the community, the senior center, churches...whoever has a need. Simply come to the Eagles' parking lot at 2 PM with a bag or two or three to haul some of these potatoes/onions away. You can enter parking lot on California SW & drive out the alley. ￼Give them to your neighbors, church members, or people you know who have a tight budget right now or whatever.￼ ￼ The potatoes come from Farmerfrog.org in case you want more information.￼￼
We will be bagging-&giving potatoes/onions until they are gone. (Last week they were gone by 3:30.) If anything remains in the truck by 5 o’clock, they will be taken to one of the food banks. ￼￼
If you would like to volunteer an hour to fill bags or hand them out, you help would be appreciated. For more information call Doris Goulet, 206-351-2768. ￼Spread the word. Donations of any kind will be accepted to help pay the good man delivering the potatoes for his cost of transport and the use of a truck.
If possible, please wear a mask and practice social distancing. Thanks everyone!
