The St. Hubert’s Knights of Columbus Council recently held a successful food drive for South Whidbey food banks.

Maple Wood Farms in Mount Vernon donated 18,000 pounds of potatoes to the Knights of Columbus of St. Hubert’s 11th annual potato drive on Oct. 22. Hanson’s Building Supply of Langley transported the potatoes from Mount Vernon to St. Hubert Catholic Church in Langley.

Along with parishioners, members of the Mobile Turkey Unit and Oak Harbor and Coupeville Knights of Columbus Councils started bagging at 8 a.m. By 10 a.m., the potatoes were sorted into 10-pound bags and then delivered to island food bank charities. They included: Good Cheer of Langley, South Whidbey Senior Center, Mobile Turkey Unit of South Whidbey, Soup Kitchen of Langley, St. Hubert Catholic Church, St. Mary’s food bank in Coupeville and the Help House of Oak Harbor.
