No small potatoes

Spuddy, mascot of the House of Friendship’s Potato Blitz in Kitchener, Ont., helped serve the more than 150 people who donated $2,490 in cash at the Feb. 24 luncheon at St Andrew’s Presbyterian Church. As of the luncheon date, House of Friendship had received more than 6,000 kilograms of potatoes and $11,465 in cash. The cash donations represent 52,000 kilograms of potatoes from House of Friendship’s local potato supplier, for a total of 59,000 kilograms, and organizers expect to exceed the 64,000-kilogram goal by the end of the blitz. The potatoes are used for House of Friendship’s emergency food hamper program.
