Plenty of potatoes have made it to a local food shed.
Knights of Columbus, Langley Council 11357 of St. Hubert Catholic Church had themselves a productive day on the farm recently. The group drove up to Fidalgo Island and bagged 2,000 pounds of potatoes donated by an island farmer, and then delivered them to Good Cheer Food Bank, Christian Mission Alliance Soup Kitchen and to the South Whidbey Mobile Turkey Unit.
“We love the Knights, and appreciate their generous donation of service at this time of year,” said Kathy McLaughlin, Good Cheer Food Bank executive director.
“It’s great to see our cold storage unit filled with bags of just harvested potatoes.”
McLaughlin said the extra food is needed as the bank serves more than 800 families per month on South Whidbey.
The food bank is currently providing clients with all the ingredients for a Thanksgiving meal in addition to a household’s monthly food points.
