Potatoes are delivered twice a week to the Community Food Bank. The Thursday delivery was 354 lbs. On Monday 478 lbs. (photo above) were donated bringing the weekly total to 832 lbs. That is 166 5 lb. bags of potatoes. Another way to look at it is dinners served. Since there are approximately 14 potatoes per bag, 2,324 parents and kids will have a delicious Sprouts or Rincon Market baked potato this week.
With a goal of approximately 4,200 Agency Market folks to feed weekly, we still have some distance to go.
